A two-day workshop on evidence-based health journalism was recently organised by the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism (MCJ), Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), in association with UNICEF in Hyderabad.
Over 120 students of journalism and mass communication from MANUU, Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) and Himachal Pradesh University and health journalists learnt the importance of evidence-based reporting and fact-checking in health journalism – through UNICEF’s Critical Appraisal Skills (CAS) programme. The workshop brought together practitioners of CAS, journalism students and subject experts to discuss the importance of evidence-based journalism in areas that impact children such as routine immunisation, COVID-19 and vaccines, antibiotics, mother and child health and primary healthcare.
