Denial of access to people in need
Other Names: Denial of humanitarian aid
Nature: In the case of conflicts within a country, the civilian population and refugees displaced within the country or a jurisdiction cannot be assisted by international bodies and are all too often deprived of care because opposing forces in the conflict deny humanitarian organizations access to the places where they are located. Denial of access may also result from jurisdictional conflicts between agencies claiming (or rejecting) responsibility for vulnerable groups.
Problem Type: E: Emanations of other problems
