MOHFW and Partners to Introduce New Health Resources for Journalists

Under the USAID-funded ICF/Macro project, a Technical Working Group was formed to develop a Health Handbook for journalists aimed at increasing and improving media coverage of health issues in Bangladesh. Led by the NGO Eminence, the group includes the DGHS and DGFP, prominent reporters from print and electronic media, and academics from journalism training programs across the country.
The group will deliver a Health Handbook that will guide reporters of the health beat to write more interesting, informative and accurate stories on health, population and nutrition. The handbook is expected next Spring, and will be used by journalism training programs and media houses in Bangladesh to improve health knowledge and reporting skills.
