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.
After the seminar, Women’s Edition participants should produce in-depth reports, series of articles and programs or radio productions on the themes of the workshop. 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.
