Mid- to senior-level journalists from Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru can apply for this program.
The Population Reference Bureau (PRB), with support from Vital Strategies, is organizing the workshop "Effective use of data in public health journalism" Oct. 8 to 15, in conjunction with the 2017 World Conference of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Ten to 15 journalists will be selected to participate in the workshop and conference.
Candidates must have previously produced stories on public health topics; have a specific idea for a data-rich public health story they want to develop; and their media organization must indicate its commitment to publish the story.
Program sessions will be simultaneously translated into English, Spanish and Portuguese. However, attendees must have a working knowledge of English.
Participants will receive travel, lodging and a stipend to cover meals and other incidental costs.
