Fatal Neglect: The Global Revolution's Forgotten Patients

Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), VII and UNION HZ will release FATAL NEGLECT, a six-part documentary film project, to tell the stories of millions of patients left behind by the global health revolution.

In Fatal Neglect: The Global Health Revolution’s Forgotten Patients, VII photographer's Seamus Murphy, Venetia Dearden, Ron Haviv, and John Stanmeyer document the impact of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, the three deadliest neglected tropical diseases -- (visceral leishmaniasis (kala azar), Human African Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), and Chagas -- and vaccine-preventable diseases.

The award-winning photojournalists traveled to Mali, Paraguay, South Sudan, and Tajikistan 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.
