MSF Will Not Attend World Humanitarian Summit, Organization Announces ‘With Disappointment’

IRIN: MSF pulls out of World Humanitarian Summit
“…The international medical organization, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF or Doctors Without Borders), announced [Wednesday] that it is not going to the World Humanitarian Summit. In a statement, MSF said it was pulling out ‘with disappointment,’ after months of preparatory discussions. MSF believes the summit may let those most responsible for spiraling humanitarian need — governments — off the hook. The summit has lost its way and become, in MSF’s opinion, ‘a fig-leaf of good intentions’…” (Parker, 5/5).
