The ADRAP Disease Reporting Fellowship

Deadline: 31st of December, 2023

The ADRAP Disease Reporting Fellowship for African Journalists is a thorough six-week program designed to improve the reporting abilities of African journalists who cover health and related themes. The fellowship is especially designed to provide journalists with the knowledge and competence needed to properly report on scientific aspects of African illnesses.

Every year, ten (10) African journalists will be selected to participate in this hands-on fellowship. Throughout the program, participants will engage in practical training sessions with scientists, seasoned journalists, and health professionals. These seminars go beyond the fundamentals of journalism, communications, and global health reporting, training journalists to communicate information across several media channels such as print, web, broadcast, social, and digital.

Program Details:

The hands-on Fellowship program is specifically designed for early to mid-career journalists, particularly those reporting on health topics in Africa. The program has a two-fold objective:

  • Firstly, it aims to eliminate biases often associated with disease reporting in Africa. To achieve this, the program focuses on building the capacity of African journalists to identify and report on diseases and health issues from well-informed perspectives.
  • Secondly, the program is meticulously structured to bridge the knowledge gap in health reporting. It accomplishes this by providing selected participants with exposure to the latest tools and techniques for in-depth reporting on various aspects of health, including social aspects of diseases, scientific developments, management strategies, policies, research focus, and more, all from an African perspective.
