Forchheimer Main Street Cafe
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
1300 Morris Park Avenue
Bronx, NY 10461
Join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for a special photo exhibit and panel discussion related to Because Tomorrow Needs Her, a multimedia project about the efforts undertaken by MSF to improve the access to and quality of women’s health care worldwide.
We know how to save their lives, yet more than 800 women die every day from pregnancy-related causes. We know how to ease their suffering, yet many victims of sexual violence go without any medical or psychological care.
Millions of babies die in the first weeks of life from preventable causes. And while we know how to keep HIV-positive mothers from passing the virus to their babies, every day 700 children come into the world with HIV.
An exhibition of photographs by international, award-winning photojournalists covering women’s health in developing countries will be on display from May 5 to May 31 on the first floor of the Forchheimer Medical Science Building.
