Nikki Kahn is a photojournalist at The Washington Post. Before joining the Washington Post in 2005, Kahn worked for Knight-Ridder Tribune Photo Service in Washington D.C. as a lead photographer and editor. Kahn has covered stories in Afghanistan, Haiti, India, Guyana, Egypt, and Tunisia. In 2002, she returned to her native country, Guyana, to begin documenting the largely under-reported emerging AIDS epidemic. In 2011, Kahn and her colleagues at The Washington Post, Carol Guzy and Ricky Carioti won a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography “for their up-close portrait of grief and desperation after a catastrophic earth-quake struck Haiti.” “AIDS in Guyana” is a window of her experience at the Georgetown Public Hospital in Guyana.
