Haven’t read this yet. Anyone want to review it for us? The Network also has information about fellowship, ethics, Ten steps to citizen journalism online By Stephen Franklin, Knight Fellow, etc.
A new trainer’s manual aims to provide health journalists with adequate tools to report on threats of bird flu.
Put together by Internews and funded by UNICEF, the manual is to help trainers design and conduct media workshops on avian influenza. The manual also includes the basic resources that media need when trying to promote awareness and discussion about the virus.
The manual was a result of a series of three-day journalists’ training workshops in Vietnam, Laos, Mongolia, Indonesia and Thailand. The training was part of the “Equipping Journalists for Accurate Reporting on Avian Influenza and the H5N1 Virus in Southeast Asia” project conducted by Internews.
