This report looks objectively at news coverage as a means to show how much – or little – of the world’s attention was focused on humanitarian crises in 2017. CARE produced this report to highlight those crises that, though large, have gotten so little attention. The report is a call for the global community to help and to advocate for people in crises who are otherwise forgotten.

Public awareness and funding for humanitarian causes are closely intertwined.
