Exhibit Title: EPIDEMIC: TB in the Global Community

Location: Various

Caption: Rhemat Shek lies on the floor of her mother’s home in Rafik Nagar, a neighborhood next to a garbage dump in northern Mumbai. Her son, Sana Jameer, and mother, Husna Bano, sit behind her. Rhemat and her husband came to Mumbai to be closer to a TB treatment center so she could receive medicine, but they say they may soon return home, interrupting Rhemat's treatment, so her husband can continue to work. She is currently so weak that she is often unable to sit up for more than 10 minutes at a time.
