    Routine immunization in Pakistan is in crisis; beset by conflict, violence and poverty and disrupted by constitutional changes devolving authority to regional governments, children in Pakistan are dying from diseases that are easily preventable. A recent outbreak of measles killed more than 500 children and Pakistan remains one of just three polio-endemic countries. But this video highlights the opportunities for improving immunization in Pakistan and the inspiring people – from senior government level to health workers in remote villages – who are striving to make that happen. The video was produced for the GAVI Alliance to encourage donors to invest in immunization, in Pakistan and other low-income countries. It was first shown at the Global Vaccine Summit, co-hosted by Bill Gates and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, held in Abu Dhabi in April 2013 during World Immunization Week. The Summit focused on energizing commitment to saving children’s lives and finally putting an end to polio through immunization. The producers of the video also made a version in Urdu for use in Pakistan to inspire health workers and encourage parents to vaccinate their children.
