Around the world, communities, in collaboration with scientists, activists, governments, and international organizations, are working together to prevent disease and improve quality of life.

Recognizing the multiple factors that cause illness, these global health leaders take an expansive view of health and medical care. They work on projects that improve access to primary healthcare, reduce discrimination, and address health information needs. Communities and healthcare workers come together to prevent disease, conduct cutting-edge research, end conflict, and recover after natural disasters.

Our shared desire for health can be a powerful, unifying force across political and national divides. Explore the stories in this exhibition that highlight how people came together to improve health in their communities and around the world.

Each of us can play a role in the search for solutions. Working together, we can make a world of difference.
