Sixty-Ninth Session of UN General Assembly High Level Meeting—South Sudan
Remarks by Jerome Oberreit, Secretary General, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen,

December 18, 2013

An urgent need exists to significantly increase cross-border assistance and to prioritize this issue in negotiations on humanitarian aid. If the government of Syria remains the sole distribution channel for international humanitarian relief efforts, then millions of Syrians will continue to be deprived of adequate assistance, particularly essential medical services.

MSF calls on all state and non-state parties to the Syrian conflict to make immediate allowance for the delivery of humanitarian aid inside the country commensurate with the massive needs of the Syrian people.

June 05, 2013

After more than two years of raging conflict in Syria, humanitarian assistance inside the country and in neighboring states hosting Syrian refugees remains far below massive and growing needs.
