GeneXpert

Content Creation & Storytelling for the modern world

Combining journalism and photography to create compelling image-driven digital publications

Project Information

Until recently in Kyrgyzstan, the diagnosis of tuberculosis was a lengthy process that could take up to three weeks to complete. This often had negative consequences for patients who always need to start the right treatment as fast as possible to maximize their chances to heal.

Fortunately, over the past few years a total of 24 GeneXpert testing systems were installed in various laboratories across the country. This system is able to deliver an accurate diagnosis, including information about drug resistance, in only two hours.

As a means to tell the general public why the GeneXpert system is important and how it works, I created what I call a “mini-story” using simple but modern and compelling tools, such as Adobe’s Spark Page. Click here to see the digital publication!
