Fatal Neglect

A Partnership between VII, Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), and UNION HZ.

A multi-part documentary film project, to tell the stories of the millions of patients left behind by the global health revolution.

In FATAL NEGLECT: The Global Health Revolution’s Forgotten Patients, VII documents the impact of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and some of the deadliest neglected tropical diseases: “kala azar,” and “sleeping sickness.” Award-winning photojournalists Ron Haviv and John Stanmeyer traveled to capture the stories of frontline health workers trying to fight diseases that affect millions of people and kill hundreds of thousands each year yet garner little attention from drug developers, policy makers or the mass media.
