The international humanitarian aid system has more means and resources at its disposal and greater know-how than ever before. However, people affected by crises and disasters are often not getting the assistance they need. This report identifies internal failings of humanitarian aid system that may account for this situation. The findings in this report are based on research into three major displacement emergencies of recent years, but are also corroborated by MSF field staff all over the world.
