Part Two of The Current
Uncomfortable Compromises: Documentary Repeat
When humanitarian workers go abroad, their first priority is to help. Unfortunately, politics, greed and self-interest can all get in the way. Medicines Sans Frontiers, or Doctors Without Borders, is marking its 40th anniversary with a collection of stories about what it's like when doctors are forced to confront those issues.
The book is called Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed: The MSF Experience. The Current's Liz Hoath spoke to three of the book's contributors, Michael Neuman, Claire Magone and Michiel Hofman and brings us their stories in her documentary, Uncomfortable Compromises. It first aired on The Current in January.
