Gutman Library
Harvard Graduate School of Education

Structural violence is physical and psychological harm that results from exploitive and unjust social, political, and economic systems. This exhibit presents lives at the opposite end of this socioeconomic structure from where we live. Under the auspices of the Department of Social Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, Partners in Health is a nonprofit organization that coordinates innovative programs to combat AIDS and women's health problems in rural Haiti and urban Massachusetts, groundbreaking tuberculosis treatment projects in the prisons of Siberia and the shantytowns of Lima, and health policy initiatives on a global scale.
