Staff and freelance journalists around the world can apply for a reporting grant.
The Africa-China Reporting Project at Wits Journalism seeks proposals for public health reporting grants in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in Africa.
Journalists must emphasize on-the-ground impact and perspectives to illustrate how the lives of the people of Africa are changing amid Africa-China relations.
Possible topics include the state of preparedness in Africa for the COVID-19 epidemic; the engagement between African and Chinese or foreign health professionals and others; inspiring role models in the African public health sector; xenophobia and stigma inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health issues; public health best practices in Africa; and more.
Grantees will receive up to US$1,500 each.
The deadline is April 30.
