10 humanitarian crises forgotten (but not gone)

So many things fall through the cracks when the media is busy covering summit meetings in mind numbing detail or delegate visits to, wherever, which are of no consequence.

Things like these crises need the spotlight turned on them and kept on them until something is done.

Do you really think there would be a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria if the media hadn't focused on such problems?
If doctors edited newspapers... The frontline physicians at Médecins Sans Frontières have chosen the 10 humanitarian crises that should have been given more coverage in 2007.

With this post I'm dropping the R2D2 audio translator for SPIIDERWEB™ Rulz!. It just doesn't seem appropriate most of the time. It was cute for a while. Go to earlier posts if you're curious.
