Posted on Apr 7, 2020 in Specialized Topics

Women journalists in senior-level positions can apply for a training program.

The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is seeking applications for its Women’s Edition South Asia program, an international network of leading female journalists interested in health and development. 

From April to September, fellows will receive training on how COVID-19 affects migration and population, family planning and reproductive health.

Participants will engage in a series of virtual classes, networking events and story development workshops providing in-depth information and coaching on these topics. Fellows will also be eligible for reporting grants to support their stories. 

Three to five women journalists from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan will be selected to participate, joining returning journalists from its 2019 cohort. English proficiency is required.

The deadline is April 17.
