UN aid chief in Afghanistan hopes country does not become "a neglected humanitarian situation"Listen /
Ongoing insecurity, widespread displacement, poor access, remote communities and high exposure to natural disasters: these are just some of the obstacles to providing humanitarian aid in Afghanistan.
The Afghan government and its humanitarian partners this week launched a $471 million appeal to assist the country, which consistently ranks low on various development indices.
They hope it will be well received as the last appeal was less than half funded.
Dianne Penn reports on the press conference announcing the launch which was held in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul.
