The project is a collaboration between Singapore-based photographer, Pearl Gan with Professor J.Kevin Baird in association with the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit, Vietnam; Eijkman Oxford Clinical Research Unit, Jakarta and The Welcome Trust.
It photo-documents the “faces” of malaria; the journey of those suffering malaria, bridging the patients, their immediate families, community care providers and their place at the periphery of the modern world.
The aim is to capture their daily life, their suffering and their humanity, which is largely invisible to the rest of the world. The exhibition aims to elevate the awareness of this serious Asia-Pacific health problem.
