Applications for the WHO Road Safety Journalism Workshop 2022 are currently open, Submit now!
Deadline: 28th September 2022
Africa has the highest road traffic fatality rate in the world. Over 800 people are killed in road crashes every day, more than half of them vulnerable road users like pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. It’s a public health crisis that is entirely preventable. It’s also a huge story that needs to be told.
In collaboration with Science Africa, World Health Organisation is hosting, a three-day workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, from 24th-26th October 2022. The goal is to equip journalists to report on key road safety issues and to prepare them to train others on this crucial topic.
The WHO Road Safety Reporting Initiative aims to help journalists tell more and better stories that help reduce deaths from crashes on the roads. In partnership with leading journalists’ networks and partners in the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety, the initiative offers training and mentoring for journalists, as well as resources, data, contacts and links to key resources.
- After WHO Road Safety Journalism Workshop 2022 training, participants may apply for grants to support either reporting or training on road safety.
- Applications from journalists and media trainers from Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia and Tanzania prioritized.
- Complete the online application form before the deadline: 28th September 2022.
