Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I am an artist and a TB survivor. In 2015, I spent seven months in the hospital with TB. I had never heard about the disease. The doctors told me not to tell anybody, because I would be stigmatized for life. I was very scared, as were the others in the hospital with me who also had tuberculosis. After a while, I realized that we should not feel guilty about our illness, and I decided to fight the stigma with the one weapon I knew: art. My project, Hold Your Breath, tells the stories of these people who shared my fate. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
