The European Journalism Centre (EJC) is seeking applicants for its Global Health Journalism Grant Programme for Germany to support projects that are aimed at improving the reporting on health care in developing countries and the German contribution to this topic.

- Freelance journalists who have experience with the subject of health, science, development cooperation and a relevant German media organization or for an organization with visible dissemination scope in Germany can apply.
