The project for the debut of the Treaty of Almaty showcases this authority and the ongoing technological progress of nations in opposing deadly pandemics. For me, it is a celebration of test cases and conflict, using data from important members of the framework of the global health arena. Pandemic catastrophe is unfortunately more frequent than not. It highlights the existence of important points of friction and paradoxes in a universe where advances in technology have often overshadowed commitments to control their spread and prevent the ravages of war and diseases to other parts of the world.
On May 5, at a commemoration ceremony held by the Russian Health Ministry, together with the World Health Organization (WHO), there will be a special presentation of an open map of WHO (2014) by the former Soviet Union’s Communications Agency, USA, before the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The map displays the health of the region and its epidemiological evolution, linking events of infection and subsequent epidemics to actions taken by states.
In its place, you will find an iconic adaptation by the Russian art agency, there for two years from 2014. The photograph shows the volume and diversity of contaminants in the region. The 3D model contains over 100 chemicals, including many neurotoxins like benzene and ricin. Additionally, it is accompanied by an experimental map of contamination zones, and a geographical analysis performed by Iteca, a research institute specialized in the field of biochemical contamination, which joins the and Visualizer for the making of photos showing substances of concern that damage human health.
Lead image: There is a specific vision that contributes to the common understanding of the Ebola crisis and their consequences. In the wake of the 2014-15 epidemic, the moment was not lost, considering the need for an approach that was both technically and spiritually powerful. Pragmatism in terms of science and strict political will in terms of humanitarianism found both close to the Russian Federation’s interests.

Background of Eurasia Area: Tandem Regions, a project launched at the 11th World Congress on Health, The Congregation of the Ministry of Health (MoH), in Astana, Kazakhstan, developed a map of the three Eurasian regions to indicate common regional geographic problems. First, it showed endemic diseases, and second, problems that affect the social and human problems in the regions. The map presents patterns of natural human settlements and populations, biological diversity and endemic diseases, as well as patterns of illnesses, transmission risks, and opportunities to control or eliminate them. The map’s points were published on the International Day of Human Development in 2015, in the context of a campaign titled “Worthy of Being Celebrated.” On this day, we marked the anniversary of the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Global decision makers at the highest level were invited to document and share their deeds and successes, so as to celebrate the ideals underlying the MDGs and better evaluate the progress made and ask how should this be accelerated, how can new objectives and strategies be incorporated, what could accelerate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development?
