The Women’s Edition Workshop is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). It will be facilitated by PRB facilitators.

The seminar will be held in Dakar (Senegal) in June 2019 and will focus on the commitment of religious leaders in the West African region to promote reproductive health and the well-being of women and families. The Women’s Edition Workshop offers a unique opportunity to be part of an international network of experienced women journalists who are interested in health and development. The PRB will select 12 women journalists from across West Africa to attend the Dakar seminar.

During the seminar, journalists will participate in sessions with experts in health and development; they will also participate in editorial meetings to develop strategies to cover these issues to better contribute to advocacy. Site visits are also on the agenda of this regional meeting. The participants selected at the end of this first workshop will have the opportunity to be invited, in 2020, to a second seminar on a different theme of reproductive health. They will have access to grants for in-depth reporting on reproductive health.

Journalists authoring the best productions will be invited to attend seminars and study tours in 2020 to learn more about reproductive health, population and development.

The PRB will cover all seminar expenses, including travel, accommodation and food.
