Novartis | Better Heart Better Cities

Makmende has been producing video and photography for the Novartis Foundations for many years. We have created a beautiful series of personal stories around leprosy for example. Check out one of the videos here
Recently, we collaborated on a photography series for the ‘Better Heart Better Cities’ programme, an initiative that aims to manage the rise of non-communicable diseases in low income urban areas. It’s a groundbreaking initiative aimed at prevention of conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, involving a broad range of stakeholders.


These set of photographs shot in two bustling cities – Ulaabantar, Mongolia and Rio de Janiero, Brazil show the risk factors that people are exposed to and also highlight the way individuals strive to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
