The fight against malaria is about to take an artistic form, as a multi-media exhibition illustrating the impact of malaria opens on April 20, at the National Museum in Accra. 'Malaria: Blood, Sweat, and Tears' was conceived and produced by Malaria Consortium and photojournalist, Adam Nadel to highlight the history, science and global impact of malaria.

'Malaria: Blood Sweat and Tears' will showcase the complex relationships between malaria, poverty and the need for international support for combating the disease on a grand scale. More than 40 images by internationally acclaimed New York City-based photographer Adam Nadel bring to life the personal stories of malaria sufferers and malaria experts from all over the world. The collection provides information on all aspects of malaria – from the history to the science – and captures the new positive outlook as a result of recent progress made in reducing malaria deaths in some African countries by over 50%.
