Training Journalists to report on HIV/AIDS: Final Evaluation of a Global Program.
UNAIDS, September 2008.
Internews Network, a U.S.-based organization that for more than two decades has trained journalists around the world, launched 2002 a project in Africa to help media improve their coverage of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Called “Local Voices,” the project expanded to Ethiopia in 2005 and India in 2006. In 2004, Internews Europe started a similar project in the Mekong region of Southeast Asia, “Turnaround Time”. That project evolved to do trainings in Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam.
Both projects had a similar, overarching goal: To increase the quality and quantity of HIV/AIDS coverage, improving the environment for prevention, treatment and care. This report evaluates Local Voices and Turnaround Time and aims to help strengthen the con- tinuing training programs, by giving findings and recommendations to train journalists in developing countries.
