Alexander said: “Love in the time of Zika – where there is love, there is hope. I took this image while on a research visit to a neurological rehabilitation centre in North East Brazil. Loving mother Anacarla cradles her baby boy Jose-davi affected by Zika-microcephaly. The true burden of the cognitive impairment associated with Zika-microcephaly is still yet unknown and will challenge Brazil’s public health system requiring a multidisciplinary effort to overcome these challenges. A colouring book with Peter Pan on its cover sits in the foreground.”
