The Africa Center, in partnership with The END Fund, announced Reframing Neglect, a new photography series at The Africa Center highlighting the need to end neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) globally.

The entire series includes 38 photos by photographers from seven African countries who highlight the weight of NTDs on individuals and communities, using art as a tool of shared human emotion while addressing the need to spread awareness of neglected diseases.

The END Fund mobilizes resources for NTDs and focuses on delivering treatments to those in need by growing and engaging a community of activist-philanthropists, managing high-impact strategic investments, and collaborating with government, NGO, pharmaceutical, and academic partners. To celebrate ten years of impact, the END Fund engaged contemporary artist and activist Aïda Muluneh to create a body of work with photographers from across six African countries impacted by NTDs: Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, and Sudan.

Featured artists include:
Aïda Muluneh
Meseret Argaw
Mustafa Saeed
Sarah Waiswa
John Kalapo
Omoregie Osakpolor
Ala Kheir

The exhibition is open Thursday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at The Africa Center located at 1280 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10029, United States.

No prior registration is required.
