Access to effective medical care is an important aspect of combating poverty. The summit on the United Nations’ Millenium Development Goals in September 2010 announced a commitment to women’s and children’s health as one aspect of achieving the 2015 Anti-Poverty Goals.

Many people around the world are still unable to access fresh water and sanitation is a growing problem. There remain the issues of complicated pregnancies, malaria, HIV/Aids, pneumonia and millions of women and children dying from preventable causes. While these often feel like little more than statistics, the cost of ignorance and inaction is paid for by real human lives.

Three TiltShift teams have taken up the Lifeline challenge, and their projects cover childhood malnutrition, maximising access to available healthcare schemes, and promoting healthy sexuality.
