Voices of the people: "Security is the most important thing"
This report covers the main findings of an internal MSF investigation which analyses the response of each actor. Its main conclusion is that the UN peacekeeping force, mandated to protect the camp and civilians, was completely inadequate in its response, with its intervention coming far too late. Humanitarian agencies were also found to be slow to react, relying on security advisories from the UN, completely divorced from an independent assessment of people’s needs.

Syria 2015: documenting war‐wounded and war‐dead
As the conflict in Syria approaches its 6th year, the humanitarian and medical toll of the violence remains appalling. Millions of people have been internally displaced, or have sought refuge abroad. Millions more are trapped in communities that are under siege or hemmed in by the closed borders of neighbouring countries. These countries, already overwhelmed by the numbers of Syrians seeking protection, have increasingly introduced restrictions on entry for new arrivals.
