27 November 2012 - 9 June 2013Sydney, Australia
To commemorate World AIDS Day 2012, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and Magnum Photos will launch the world-renowned photographic exhibition Access to Life at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia. This is the exhibition’s first visit to Australia, and coincides with the 30th anniversary of the first reported case of HIV in Australia.
Through the collaboration with Magnum Photos, the Global Fund harnessed the talents of some of the best photographers in the world to create Access to Life as a means of capturing the complex changes that take place when people who are faced with death have access to antiretroviral treatment, and thereby, a new chance at life. An international team of nine noted photographers travelled to ten countries to document the transformative effects that AIDS treatment has had on more than forty individuals and their families.
Sydney will be the tenth city in the world to show Access to Life, but the very first to add Papua New Guinea – Australia’s closest neighbor and the country facing the largest HIV epidemic in the Asia-Pacific region. These most recent images were taken by acclaimed British photographer Chris Steele-Perkins in August this year. Access to Life is a powerful testament to the strength and spirit of each person, the care and commitment of those around them, and the life-changing impact of treatment for AIDS, which is made available thanks to international funding.
Through ongoing financial support from the world’s developed country governments and many other stakeholders across the globe, the Global Fund currently provides one-quarter of all international funding to fight HIV and AIDS. Today, this translates into the provision of free lifesaving antiretroviral treatment for 3.6 million patients worldwide, allowing people who were otherwise at risk of death to live normal, healthy lives.
Closer to Australia’s own borders, all eligible countries in the Asia-Pacific region have been provided with grants from the Global Fund since it began in 2002. Of the 24 percent of total approved funding (US$ 5.4 billion, or AUD 5.2 billion) in the Asia-Pacific region, US$ 307 million (AUD 297 million) is being dedicated to Pacific Island countries – funding programs that prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
