Brief

Accelerating access to blood disorders care: this is the goal of a joint project being implemented in Kenya and Tanzania. In November 2021, four days of high-level meetings between Ministry of Health officials and workshops, attended by doctors and representatives of patient organisations, took place in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. 

Fairpicture photographer Amini Suwedi was commissioned to document both the high-level meetings with Ministry of Health officials in Dar es Salaam and the concrete work at the newly established haemophilia care clinic in Morogoro.

Context

Haemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot properly. 80 percent of people with haemophilia live in low- and middle-income countries. Many are undiagnosed and lack access to quality care. Left untreated, people with haemophilia can suffer from pain, disabilities and fatal complications. That is why it is so important to ensure prompt diagnosis, access to care and treatment, and empower patients and to talk about the disease in public with authentic stories.

Outcome

For the Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation, working together is key to create greater impact.  This is not only true for the operational partners, who work with different stakeholders in their community to ensure that each relevant group has a voice. Partnerships with other organisations are also encouraged to enhance impact through joint initiatives, such as in the joint Kenya-Tanzania project. 

For communications is as true when working with partners such as Fairpicture: “Documenting our partners’ impact on people’s lives and capturing authentic stories inspires us and others to continue impacting care, together. Working with Fairpicture and with visual creators like Amini Suwedi gave us the opportunity to enrich our storytelling with new perspectives and lights.
