Portraits of Resilience

HealthRight International builds lasting access to health for excluded communities, employing a human rights-based approach and working closely with community partners to improve local capacity and advance the inclusivity of health systems. In 2014, HealthRight partnered with photographer Daniel Jack Lyons on a series of images called Portraits of Resilience. The series celebrates the triumph of excluded communities around the world over disease and discrimination.

Excluded populations – including orphans, street youth, minorities of all types, drug users, survivors of torture, sex workers, and more – bear a disproportionately large burden of ill health and human rights violations in virtually every society around the world. Stigma, misguided laws, and myopic institutions perpetuate a vicious cycle of disease, discrimination and violence that ensnares these communities. These photographs feature individuals who have benefitted from HealthRight’s work in Kenya, Nepal, Ukraine and the USA.

The photographs will be sold and auctioned at two benefit events, one in LA and one in NYC, with all proceeds going to support HealthRight's work with excluded populations.
