3rd PRIZE in the category IMPACT AGAINST AIDS, TUBERCULOSIS AND MALARIA, by Kyi Pyar Soe:
In Myanmar, 24-year-old TB community health worker Yon Naing Oo (left) gives health education and counselling to TB patients, including those who are co-infected with HIV. He visits the home of Ma Khiin Son Oo and her two children, who are all living with HIV. 8-year-old May Thinzar Oo has also been diagnosed with TB.
What the jury thought: “Community health workers are highly trusted and respected members of the communities they serve, and Kyi Pyar has demonstrated it beautifully through this image.”
