Fellowships send journalists to HIV and TB conferences


Print and online journalists, including photojournalists and videographers, can apply for a fellowship to travel to a health conference.

Johns Hopkins University’s International Reporting Project (IRP) will offer up to five international reporting fellowships to cover the 2016 AIDS conference and TB pre-conference. The events will take place July 16 to 22 in Durban, South Africa.

Candidates must write an essay of at least 500 words describing the narrative they would pursue at the conferences. Topics may include disparities in access to health care, the search for cures and treatments, drug resistance, prevention research, human rights violations and the role of marginalized communities in battling the diseases and more.

Fellows receive round-trip air tickets to South Africa, visas, hotel costs, local transportation and several meals.

The deadline is June 1.
