The ADRAP has unveiled the 14 elite African journalists selected for the inaugural edition of the first-ever Africa Disease Reporting Fellowship (ADReF) for journalists reporting health in Africa.

Daily Trust Health Editor, Ojoma Akor, is among the 14 African journalists selected for the 6-week fellowship programme.

The organisation in a statement said the fellows who were selected from a list of over 100 applications from journalists with highly impressive résumé across 22 African countries are coming with diverse experience in field reporting, editing and multi-media engagements.

They will be part of a six-week intensive learning programme aimed at honing their skill sets in disease reporting from the African perspective.

ADRAP said the fellowship programme, which holds between March and April of each year involves five weeks of active virtual mentorship engagements with highly experienced faculties, and learnings from seasoned experts in science and health journalism, health promotion and administration, and other professionals in related fields.

This culminates to a final one-week of face-to-face engagements with experts, partners and field trips in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

The fellows will also have the opportunity to explore the allure of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.

ADRAP’s founder, Dr Joseph Enegela, says ADReF is a game-changer for health journalism and disease intervention in Africa.
