Women’s Edition Workshop for South Asian Journalists to Cover Child Marriage in Depth


Deadline: 4 February 2019

Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is currently accepting applications for its Women’s Edition South Asia program. Women’s Edition brings together senior-level women journalists—editors, reporters, and producers—for week-long seminars to examine important topics related to women’s and girls’ reproductive health and development. The 2019 seminar will be in Kathmandu, Nepal, and will focus on child marriage.

Women’s Edition offers a unique opportunity to become part of an international network of leading women journalists interested in women’s health and development. PRB will select 12 to 14 women journalists from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan to participate in the Kathmandu seminar, to be held in late March or early April 2019. Successful participants from this group will be invited to another seminar on a different reproductive health topic in 2020 and may be eligible for reporting grants to fund in-depth coverage.

At the Kathmandu seminar, journalists will engage in sessions with health and development experts who will explain the reproductive health issues linked to early marriage, participate in editorial meetings to develop strategies for covering these issues from a policy perspective, and join site visits to see innovative programs in action.

Women’s Edition is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and is conducted by seasoned PRB trainers who have been organizing Women’s Edition activities for more than a decade.
