Our Mission

Essity and Fotografiska have stated a long-term mission to raise awareness about global hygiene and health, and how this fundamental issue affects the well-being of people around the world.

Not just physically, but also how hygiene and health are related to basic human needs and rights, such as education and gender equality, and society’s general development.

The story is told through photography and with Essity’s expertise and long experience within this area. Through our partnership, we aim to inspire a more conscious and sustainable world.

Gapminder's exciting material Dollar Street is also featured in the exhibition.
