What Sanctions Do

Having been banned from conducting international financial transactions led many pharmaceutical companies to bankruptcy and therefore raised the price
for drugs dramatically. These companies’ being wiped out of the market was not only their owners’ concern anymore; it was also the concern for thousands of patients whose lives depended on those medications.

With a quick look at Iran on those days, we could see an invisible connection among people because of the shared pain and challenges they were facing.
This difficult situation made living so unbearable for citizens, especially for patients and their families, that sometimes going through one day seemed like a century.

About Silent War

SEYED MEHDI HOSSEINI

What Is My Story?

It all started from the last few days of year 2012 when I heard the sad news of my father’s illness. He was diagnosed with Liver cirrhosis.

Without doubt, medicine sanctions against Iran was a silent war in which the battlefield was people’s and their everyday lives; an invisible war without news
coverage and medias close attention. This collection is trying to demonstrate not only these patients and their serious chronic diseases but also a social phenomenon caused by so called “scraps of paper” and sanction statements. This is clearly just one example from many other silent wars people have been facing in the last decade or so.

SEYED MEHDI HOSSEINI

I have lived with many people (who some of them are not alive anymore) and have created a photo book of their lives. I am sharing this book just to spread the sound of sanctions, which I call it Silent War.

Our mission and vision

We had been surrounded by lots of prescriptions for rare medicine while sanction statements were piling up at international agencies. During that rough time, patients and their families were frustrated with the struggle of going to pharmacies, either public or private, to provide their rare expensive medications. Sanctions impacts in variety of aspects of life and society. The main domains are as shown below.

Economic

Most of the time countries economy is targeted directly with sanctions.

Medical

Medical section including many innocent patients will be another group which indirectly are impacted.

Social

No one talks about this, but people who live in a society are the only ones who feel the problems the most.

Foreign Policy

A country’s policy will be changed during the sanctions. Good or bad, more or less they employee diplomacy to alleviate the side effects.

Education

When it impacts economy, politics, and society, education again will be indirectly impacted.

Technology

This one we don’t understand. The west shout the freedom, and yet basic usage of technology is prohibited for group of people!

Who Is The Real Target?
