AIBD 1-Month Online Workshop/ Mentoring Session for Health Journalists and Content Creators (ASEAN & PACIFIC – Group 1)
The ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, and threat of emergence of other epidemics have highlighted the need for strengthening the capacity of the broadcasters to cope with such public health issues. The recognition that ill health not only incapacitates individuals and puts financial burden on their families, but also can impact national economy as well as the bottom line of broadcasters, makes this task urgent. It has become clear that it is important to train journalists further on reporting on health issues.
