MSF Reports: Top ten most underreported humanitarian stories of 2007

MSF began producing the "Top Ten" list in 1998 when a devastating famine in southern Sudan went largely unreported in the U.S. media. Drawing on MSF's emergency medical work, the list seeks to generate greater awareness of the magnitude and severity of crises that are not always reflected in media accounts. Often, media attention is critical for generating and improving responses.
