Deadline approaching: health and human rights training [Africa]

Posted on Feb 10, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Journalists from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Tunisia can apply for this training program, which will take place March 8 to 12.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation, in partnership with the Global Fund, is offering a five-day full-time online training program in French to strengthen journalists' skills and deepen their knowledge of human rights-related barriers to health services.

The program, which is part of the "Breaking Down Barriers" initiative, aims to help journalists raise awareness about how stigma, gender inequality and discrimination are barriers to accessing health services for some of the world's most vulnerable populations.

Candidates must have at least two years of professional experience.

The deadline is Feb. 17.
