GlobalPost Announces New Initiative Supporting Reporting On Global Health, Other Development Issues

On Wednesday, GlobalPost announced an initiative, dubbed “The GroundTruth Project,” which is supported by multiple foundations and includes fellowships for young reporters in “under-reported corners of the world.” According to GlobalPost, the “fellowships will focus on the issues of emerging democracies, human rights, global health, religion and other social justice issues and will seek to foster new forms of storytelling in the digital age.” The news service notes the Kaiser Family Foundation will “provid[e] a third year of support for a partnership in fellowships, training and reporting on global health issues and this year GlobalPost ‘Special Reports’ is exploring the challenges of reducing child mortality in a series titled ‘The Seven Million,’ referring to the number of children under the age of five who die every year largely from preventable diseases” (Sennott, 5/1).
