In any epidemic, those on the frontlines — the health care workers — carry the greatest burden. I created these illustrations for two special reports on Prevent Epidemics, Protecting Health Care Workers and Health Heroes: The Faces of Infection Prevention and Control.
For the first report, I had to visualise the mental health of health care workers during the COVID pandemic, as well as the history of personal protective equipment (PPP) through time.
For the second report, each Health Care Worker in the profile had supplied photographs but the quality was too varied to be useable. To get around this, I redrew each headshot to ensure they were visually consistent.
