Knight Fellows in Africa Develop Tools To Improve Health Data Reporting

Jul 242012

Knight International Journalism Fellows collaborated with Measure DHS (Demographic Health Surveys) in Entebbe, Uganda, to develop tools that can be used to train other journalists to accurately report on health issues using data. The complexity of understanding health data, coupled with the thoughtful and sensitive coverage necessary when reporting HIV prevalence, makes training health journalists critical to improving public health in Africa.
