Falling through the Cracks: The Mounting Health Crisis amid Situations of Precarious Stability
Statement by Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director Médecins Sans Frontières

Once again in this type of situation, there is a lot of confusion introduced, whether deliberately or through a lack of correct information, between the role of the states that have ratified the statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the United Nations, and the activities of independent humanitarian organizations such as Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
