Global Health Experience Exhibit
Global Health Week on the Hill was a great success.
Five members of Congress walked through the Global Health Experience
28 congressional offices participated
More than 360 people visited the Global Health Experience in the Rayburn Foyer
Nine organizations partnered to bring the exhibit to the East Coast in order to draw congressional focus to global health during “Global Health Week on the Hill”, February 26-March 5, 2013. Activities included a public exhibition of the Global Health Experience display in the Rayburn Building foyer, a high-level Congressional staff briefing outlining government funding and creative partnerships, a simulcast of the newly-released Global Burden of Disease Study results featuring Bill Gates, and a Congressional reception in the Global Health Experience exhibit in cooperation with the Congressional Caucuses on Global Health and Effective Foreign Assistance.

About the Exhibit
The Global Health Experience is an interactive exhibit highlighting the challenges and progress for four health threats: malaria, cancer, diabetes, and maternal and child health. Each "lifelane" begins with an overview of the impact of that disease or health threat. Visitors use their cell phones to connect to a narrated exhibit guide. The journey tells a personal story and ends with examples of successful research and programs, as well as a list of organizations contributing to solutions. Additional context is offered through "myths" and "realities."
Nearly 10,000 people visited the exhibit during Global Health Month at the Next Fifty celebration at Seattle Center
