International Health Journalism Fellowship Project – Russia
International Health Journalism Fellowship Project: RUSSIA/UKRAINE
About the Project
The Kaiser Family Foundation and Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS joined to create the International Health Journalism Fellowship Project: Russia/Ukraine. The goal of the Media Fellowships Project was to encourage substantive coverage of the health, social, economic, political and cultural implications of HIV/AIDS and associated health problems, as well as policies and programs to address HIV/AIDS in Russia and Ukraine.
The program selected journalists to undertake individual projects that focused on Russia or Ukraine. These were all
- projects unlikely to be undertaken or completed without a grant
- projects that focused on issues currently under-reported or not reported at all
- projects that had a high likelihood of being published/broadcast
- projects accessible to a relatively large audience
Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS (TPAA) is an independent, non-governmental organization that leverages the political, civic, scientific, and economic resources of North American, European, and Eurasian partners to combat the rapid and devastating spread of HIV/AIDS in Russia, Ukraine and neighboring countries.
