TB Mural - Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic project created several key items:
Fotovoces (Photovoices) is a project in the Dominican Republic which aims to uncover the the human face of TB. Using photography and accompanying text, TB patients express their feelings and experiences, whilst driving both education and discussion on the subject of Tuberculosis. Selected photos can be seen in the form of a slideshow, which is available in English and Spanish. There is also a publication which covers the process of creating the Fotovoces which can be downloaded here (Spanish).
