The programme “Global Health Journalism Grants for France” is a
project operated by the European Journalism Centre (EJC). This is the last round of the grant
programme which aims to advance creative reporting
approaches, enabling a better coverage of international health, health
policy and development related issues in German media.
The European Journalism Centre will award around 8 more stipends worth €120,000 to freelance and staff journalists in this last round.
This programme is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The project rewards quality journalism and advances a new and
distinctive agenda for development coverage on health topics through the
award of funding to a selection of state-of-the-art reporting projects
of great impact and high visibility.
From 2018 to date, the EJC has been running this Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for France, with 23 projects funded so far. Equally, a Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for Germany was launched in autumn of 2016, and 43 projects have been awarded in five rounds so far. A new call for applications for Germany is launched simultaneously.
