Do You Know About These Crises?
Doctors Without Borders have produced a list of 2004's 10 Most Underreported Humanitarian Crises. These are basically getting no coverage in the media or if any not much. We in the US are focused on our own problems, which are considerable, but should at least understand these and allows us to put ours into perspective. I was especially shocked to read about TB which I stupidly thought was virtually wiped out except for an isolated case here and there. It kills someone every 15 seconds worldwide.
