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
