Item description for The Cardboard House: Msf Peru -- 25 Years on AIDS by Larry Towell...

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) is an
international humanitarian organization,
committed to providing medical assistance to
populations in danger and to raising awareness
of the plight of the people they help. Today MSF
is active in more than 60 countries in the world.
MSF has been working in Peru since 1985.
In Peru, the prevalence of HIV/AIDS is low, but
highest amongst the most neglected members
of society there, mainly homosexual men and
commercial sex workers. Since 2004, MSF has
offered HIV/AIDS care in the slum of Villa El
Salvador, Lima.
In Lima, MSF has been working in
Lurigancho, one of the most populated prisons
of Latin America. In this prison the risk of
contracting HIV/AIDS is 5 to 7 times higher than
in the rest of the country.
At the end of 2007 MSF hand over all Peruvian
projects to local authorities, leaving the country
after almost 25 years.
Larry Towell (Magnum Photos) was
commissioned by MSF to travel to the prison
and the slums in Lima to photograph the result
of MSF s 25-year presence, and show that the
area is now ready to continue its fight against
HIV and AIDS on its own.
Towell brings us black and white images
of people shunned by society and desperate
through poverty, their situation exacerbated
through the endemic HIV and AIDS in their
already marginalised population. MSF has
targeted their cause for the past 25 years.
This book is a celebration of their work and
the people whose existence they have salvaged.
