“Fragile Lives—Immunization at Risk”
Writer, Producer, and Director: Jenny Barraclough
Executive Producer: Scott Wittet, PATH's Children's Vaccine Program, with WHO and UNICEF as production partners.

Hailed as "the greatest public health success story of all time," today childhood immunization faces obstacles never seen before. While immunization still saves three million young lives each year, millions more could be saved if there were enough vaccine and enough political will to protect all children in need.

Sometimes war is the enemy of immunization, sometimes ethnic distrust, rumors and misinformation. But there are heroes as well-people dedicated to bringing immunization to every child, everywhere. Filmed on location in Africa, Asia, and Europe, "Fragile Lives-Immunization at Risk" brings to life the human face of immunization, its promises, and its challenges.

"Fragile Lives" is an independent film written, produced and directed by Jenny Barraclough of Barraclough Productions, based in the UK.

Any questions about obtaining, copying, or distributing the film in video or DVD format should be directed to Scott Wittet at PATH (not IAC). Contact Scott at swittet@path.org or (206) 285-3500.
