The Human Spirit Project is a collection of individual stories that show the various battles fought against the TB epidemic.
The Human Spirit is a collaboration of researchers, patients, policymakers, and innovators seeking to change the way we perceive the TB epidemic. For far too long, we have guided our thoughts with data. And although data are important, they miss the beating heart of what truly makes up the epidemic: the Human Spirit.
The purpose of the Human Spirit Project is to meaningfully change the conversation about TB. We want to move away from simply looking at data and towards what the data personify. We want to shift the conversation. We want to remind the world that people of all walks of life, in every crevice of the globe, are fighting the disease in their own way – whether they are a patient, researcher, doctor, and the list goes on and on. Each person has their own fight in the TB epidemic, and the Human Spirit Project seeks to highlight these individual battles.
