IRIN is an award-winning humanitarian news and analysis service covering the parts of the world often under-reported, misunderstood or ignored.
It delivers unique reporting from the frontlines of humanitarian action to over a million online readers.
IRIN exists to make a difference. According to a 2008 survey by the global marketing research company ACNielsen, IRIN is the premier online humanitarian news source for people who describe themselves as having a “strong impact on humanitarian issues”. Its reports are used directly in planning, advocacy and policy development.
The survey also found that when it comes to keeping abreast of humanitarian news and issues, IRIN’s coverage was preferred to its closest rival, BBC Online, by a ratio of 4 to 1.
