Picturing Health | 75 years of progress and challenges - World Health Organization - Εικόνα

The history of the World Health Organization is being presented for the first time to the public in the universal language of the image. Through a collection of photographs, dating back all the way to the beginnings of the organization, the exhibition traces WHO’s multifaceted service to humanity. The organization’s response to public health and humanitarian emergencies is captured through the photographic lens of many different creators, each with an approach that reveals a historical moment or part of our world, in which WHO has provided, or is still providing, medical, pharmaceutical or humanitarian assistance, as well as valuable know-how. 

In addition to presenting WHO’s work, the exhibit also aspires to bring the general public into a more direct, more personal contact with the organization, so that its name stops sounding so distant, official and foreign, and is instead visualized through everyday moments and scenes of human life we all know and can identify and connect with.
