Aid access to Somalia:there must be no hidden agenda to humanitarianism
Dr Rhona MacDonald describes the recent agreement of an armed group in Somalia to permit international organisations to provide aid to massive numbers of ill and starving people. The armed group makes it clear that there must be no "hidden agenda" over the aid given. Dr MacDonald references the recent alleged CIA led pretend immunisation programme designed to fulfil military objectives in Pakistan as an example of the potentially dangerous impact of hi-jacking humanitarianism. The article also stresses the importance of protecting health (including nutrition) during armed conflict.
