a Science in the Newsroom workshopFREE Register here!
Join us on 21 February to identify the big health challenges and story opportunities on women’s health in the Asia-Pacific.
Ahead of International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March, this masterclass is presented by the World Editors Forum’s Science in the Newsroom programme, in partnership with Roche.
It aims to help journalists and editors understand the major health challenges facing women in the region, and develop story ideas and angles to strengthen the range and impact of your coverage. The program will also dive into reporting on the inequities in treatment, care and access to healthcare that women faced, for news media to be the voice in this era of the COVID pandemic where the different health needs of women can be recognised and met.
The training programme will take a ‘solutions journalism’ approach to help journalists in covering responses to women’s health challenges, the effectiveness and limitations of these responses, and the insights and evidence that can support the adoption of best practice across the region.
Participants will have the opportunity to address questions with health experts as they share the topic on ‘What Can Be Done to Provide Better Care for Women?’.
The programme is scheduled before IWD, to give the editorial teams time to consider, research, and produce stories to put what you have learned into immediate action.
