James Nachtwey’s Powerful XDR-TB Photography

I try not to link to TED Talks as I believe doing so will just add to the millions around the Internet already doing so (plus, I hope everyone visiting here already subscribes to the TED Talks RSS feed).

Today, however, l feel compelled to do so after viewing James Nachtwey’s heartbreaking photographs of people suffering from the drug-resistant XDR-TB.

Photojournalist James Nachtwey sees his TED Prize wish come true, as we share his powerful photographs of XDR-TB, a drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis that’s touching off a global medical crisis. Learn how to help at http://www.xdrtb.org
