Humanitarian Outcomes will present recent research on navigating access challenges in Haiti and data from recent surveys of people in hard to access contexts.

MSF will reflect on their own experience of access negotiations in Myanmar and Haiti. Chaired by the MSF Humanitarian Access and Networking Coordinator (Sandrine Tiller) with Paul Harvey presenting Humanitarian Outcomes research and Sandra Lamarque (MSF Operations Coordinator) discussing Haiti and Roger Gutierrez Salgado (MSF Access Adviser) discussing Myanmar.
