Allowing the lens to capture the state of global health—from the brutal reality of childbirth in places where health workers, clean water, and roads are non-existent to how insurance reform in countries such Rwanda or the education of young girls in Nigeria benefit those communities—offers intimate glimpses into moments of pain and triumph. Yet, "We all have the same camera, but we each follow our own passions; our own hearts," 2014 Photo Fellow Mark Tuschman reminded those gathered at an opening reception for the SDN/MSH Winners of the 2014 Call for Entries on Using the Power of Photography to Promote Global Awareness.

You are invited to join MSH and our partners for two exciting events this month in Washington, DC, and Brooklyn, New York.

On Thursday, Feb. 20, President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick will join Drs. Ana Langer and Jacqueline Mahon at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC, for a critical discussion on addressing gender-based inequalities in health through a shared maternal health and universal health coverage (UHC) post-2015 sustainable development agenda.

On Thursday, Feb. 27, panelists, including MSH's Director of Strategic Communications Barbara Ayotte and two MSH photo fellows, will discuss using the power of photography to increase global health awareness. Ayotte will also describe the MSH Photography Fellows Program, in partnership with SocialDocumentary.net. A photography exhibition and reception will follow this New York event.
