“I painted myself in the mirror in our chamber. This is how I saw myself every morning for 7 long months when I woke up in the hospital. With my self-portrait I wanted to cheer up my hospital friends – I wanted to show them that I am not afraid to paint myself suffering from Tuberculosis. I think I inspired them to go forward with my project – they were very curious and they posed for my paintings with pleasure. What was the most important for me is that – they were not afraid to speak out anymore. So it is my confession, and not only mine but of those people in my paintings too. And we say to everybody that we are not afraid to speak out and we want to inspire other people to break this silence too. So TB patients can live without a fear to be stigmatised”

Today is World Tuberculosis Day. We are hosting the “Hold your breath” exhibition by Russian artist Paulina Siniatkina at the WHO HQ. She made a series of artworks during her months of tuberculosis treatment in a Moscow TB clinic. This is her story. Leave no one behind – Let’s unite to End TB.
