11 Jun Photofilm for MGH: A Few More Breaths
Every 15 seconds, a child dies from malaria.
I edited and produced this photofilm about the effects of cerebral malaria, and medical trials in Uganda to help prevent these deaths.
Produced by: Liza Zapol and Jon Lowenstein

Commissioned by: Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Critical Care Research and the MGH Center for Global Health, Boston, 2013.
“My dream is to see malaria eradicated completely, but before that happens we can’t let children continue to die. We have to make sure that those who get the disease get healed completely and also when they get better they don’t have sequelae, that they live a complete life, and be useful citizens to the country and to the world at large.
For me that’s my dream.”
