If you can spare a little time and lend a hand, perhaps you can make a difference...
The below is taken from James Nachtwey's Facebook page:
James Nachtwey spent the past year traveling and photographing the epidemic of XDR-TB -- a new, killer form of tuberculosis that is breaking out around the world.
[NOTE: Photojournalist James Nachtwey is considered by many to be the greatest war photographer of recent decades. He has covered conflicts and major social issues in more than 30 countries.]
This is a health crisis, yes, but also a political one -- solving it is entirely possible, but it will take money and political will.
