Top 10 Underreported Humanitarian Stories of 2009

Once a year the international medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) releases a list of ten stories that received little media attention despite the fact that they concern some of the most urgent humanitarian issues and crises in the world. This year's list, their twelfth, focuses in part on the devastating consequences of war and political unrest on civilian populations. It also lists malnutrition and AIDS, both of which kill millions every year.
