Workshop for Women Journalists Reporting on HIV/AIDS (2)
The use of ICTs in reporting on the science of HIV/AIDS: A workshop
for women communicators
April 2003, Uganda
SciDev.Net and UNESCO are pleased to announce a five-day training
workshop on the use of information and communications technologies -
in particular the Internet - to improve reporting on HIV/AIDS, which
will take place in Uganda in April 2003.
The workshop is aimed at those who are (or would like to be) profes-
sionally engaged in communicating HIV/AIDS information to the public
- through print, radio or electronic means.
The workshop will have 15 places, and is restricted to women partici-
pants. The workshop will focus on learning to source and report on
latest scientific developments. It will include practical tuition in
both basic and advanced Internet skills - including searching for
relevant and reliable information and resources, and networking with
special interest groups - as well as training in basic journalism
The workshop will also involve discussions and seminars on the chal-
lenges of reporting about HIV/AIDS in Africa, and the role of African
people in the research and development of new vaccines and drugs.
All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for partici-
pants; applications are invited from individuals working in Africa
with a good knowledge of written and spoken English. A more detailed
programme for the workshop will appear on this web site shortly:
We are now open for applications.
Applications should arrive no later than 31 December 2002.
