Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) was awarded the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize. Using the prize money, the organisation started a campaign to increase global access to vital medicines, under the slogan “Medicines shouldn’t be a luxury.” Two decades later, former students of Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm have created luxurious jewellery inspired by the shapes of medicines. Their project is among efforts to heighten public awareness of the fact that millions of people around the world are still dying because life-saving medicines are too expensive.
