International Reporting Project New Media Journalism Fellowship
This trip will focus on the issues of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria in Zambia. Like other sub-Saharan countries, Zambia has made significant progress in addressing these diseases. At a time when global experts are examining the replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to combat these diseases, what happens on the ground in this southern African country is vital to decisions that may influence policymakers and affect future funding for treatment.
One of ten new media journalists selected for 10 day trip to Zambia to report on Global Health.
The Zambia Fellows will visit urban and rural sites to examine mother-to-child transmission of HIV, the high rates of HIV/TB co-infection, the challenges of drug delivery in rural areas, drug resistance issues, use of bed nets and other low-cost solutions to malaria, malaria during pregnancy. We will also investigate the use of technology in healthcare, and social and environmental factors – for example, gender-based violence and concurrent sexual partnerships – that exacerbate the spread of these diseases.
