Negative media campaign

07/01/10 - 08/31/10

According to Annual report:
"Due to the negative media campaign which affected MSF in July-August 2010 and which could have had serious consequences, special efforts must be made throughout 2011 to regularly inform our partners and the general public about MSF activities and principles. The perception of MSF in the south should be continuously monitored and corrected where necessary."
