Top Ten Most Underreported Humanitarian Stories of 2005

File this under the stories you will never hear about in the mainstream media. Doctors without Borders has filed a special report, for the 8th year, on the "Ten Most Underreported Humanitarian Stories of 2005". Not exactly the most uplifting reading, but it is certainly important reading because if nothing else once in a while we should have some knowledge of what is happening in the rest of the world. This is stuff you won't see in your evening news or your favorite network on cable. It's the type of thing you have to make a bit of an effort in order to remain informed. So take a look at the world from Sudan to Haiti to the crisis of spreading HIV in the world.

Hat tip to the blog Stories in America for the pointer.
