Yet this escalating emergency has received scant media attention and garnered little in the way of donor funding.

MSF has deployed thousands of staff to run hospitals and malnutrition feeding centers, build wells for drinking water, and provide sanitation services in response to the emergency in South Sudan. Facing catastrophic death rates, escalating malnutrition, outbreaks of malaria, and extremely complex logistical hurdles, MSF teams are further scaling up an already massive aid effort in an incredibly challenging environment.

The panelists will provide first-hand accounts of the on-the-ground reality of mobilizing the aid effort; from dealing with washed out roads and airstrips, to coping with outbreaks of severe malnutrition, malaria, and diarrheal disease. August 29.
