Posted on 10 juin 2019 dans Specialized Topics

Print, broadcast and online journalists from Africa, Asia and Latin America are invited to apply for this all-expenses-paid program.

The Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM)'s Journalist-in-Residence Program 2019 offers journalists the opportunity to deepen their understanding of topical issues in tropical medicine and global health in Antwerp, Belgium.

Participants will work on a project in the realm of tropical medicine and global health (a documentary or a series of articles, for example) and interact with world experts in a wide range of topics in biomedical sciences, clinical sciences and public health.

Applicants must be available Oct. 9 and 10 to take part in the 60th ITM colloquium during the residency, which typically lasts two to three weeks. 

The initiative is part of ITM’s capacity building program in developing countries financed by the Belgian Directorate-General for Development (DGD). 

The deadline is June 24.
