Fatal NeglectMultidrug-Resistant TB: No Promises 
Patients with tuberculosis must undergo lengthy, arduous treatment regimens in the best of times. When stricken with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, or MDR-TB, however, the road back to health is even more difficult.
The most neglected are children living with MDR-TB. VII Photo’s Ron Haviv visited MSF’s pediatric MDR-TB program in Tajikistan, one of Asia’s poorest countries, where the disease is indeed spreading at an alarming rate.

Bangladesh: Terrifying Normalcy

Photojournalist Ron Haviv traveled to the island of Bhola in southern Bangladesh to document the challenges of food insecurity, rapid climate change and poverty which make malnutrition so pervasive on this densely-populated island.

Today, on World Food Day, SIGN and SHARE the Starved For Attention petition and be part of the campaign to rewrite the story of malnutrition and demand that the 195 million malnourished children get the attention they need and deserve to escape the deadly cycle of malnutrition.

I hope that the project will really be able to put a face on this amazing statistic of 195 million. Each of those 195 million people are one by one, and here you get to see and hear some of their voices.
In the Interview with Photojournalist Ron Haviv, Haviv comments on the Starved for Attention project. As part of the campaign, Haviv documented malnutrition in Bangladesh in the film "Terrifying Normalcy."
