DRC: Covering gender-based violence & AIDS

June 10-20, 2018

The journalistic challenges of covering gender-based violence and AIDS were the focus of VOA’s three-day training programs. Seventy eight journalists from radio, television and print media participated in the training program held in three different cities:  Goma (10-12 June),  Lubumbashi (13-15 June) and Kinshasa (18-20 June).

Participants learned how to identify and produce good health stories and shows, how to conduct interviews, how to find trustworthy sources of information and other building blocks and ‘best practices’ of health reporting.
