Top 10 Humanitarian Crises

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF – also known as Doctors Without Borders) has published its annual list of the top ten humanitarian crises.

The 2008 list is as follows:

1. Somalia
2. Myanmar
3. Zimbabwe
4. Democratic Republic of Congo
5. Child malnutrition
6. Ethiopia
7. Pakistan
8. Sudan
9. Iraq
10. HIV/TB co-infection

MSF claimed that providing aid proved to be especially difficult this year as a result of increased security risks and inadequate government attention to worsening situations.
