In many parts of the world, it is getting more dangerous for organizations like Medicins Sans Frontieres to do their work because they are often targeted for attacks. Nicolas de Torrente, the director of MSF-USA stated to the BBC:
The issue for us is how to reach these people and how to try to

Governments don't want us to be present - they fear

populations and, increasingly, we see attacks, directed attacks, against aid
