Reuters Offers Course on HIV/AIDS Reporting for Developing World Journalists

August 12, 2009

Reporting on HIV can be tricky. Stories about HIV are rarely just about the virus: Writers may find themselves dealing with medical science, international politics, economics and even lifestyle and first-person accounts. To help writers learn to navigate these intricacies, the Thomas Reuters Foundation has developed a course on HIV/AIDS reporting.

The class is open to reporters and feature writers from developing areas in Africa, Asia, South America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe. It uses expert briefings, discussions, a high-profile public panel debate and practice writing exercises to help journalists gain confidence when writing about HIV/AIDS.

The five-day course takes place in Nairobi and begins November 2. Applicants should have about five years of experience as reporters and should cover HIV stories, but do not have to be specialists. The deadline to apply is August 14.

Tuition is £200 each day, plus travel, living and accommodation expenses, but full and partial bursaries are available for journalists from countries in political transition, or who work for organizations with limited resources for training.
