WHO and Internews host workshop for journalists in the context of Safety 2012
From 29 September to 1 October, a 2.5 day workshop was held for journalists from 11 countries to expose them to key issues and trends in road safety and violence prevention and support their framing and development of stories on issues highlighted during Safety 2012.
Participants from Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kenya, New Zealand, and Viet Nam represented leading national print and broadcast media in their countries, including Folha de São Paolo, Phnom Penh Post, the Times of India and Viet Nam News.
Staff from WHO, Johns Hopkins University (USA) and the University of Otago (New Zealand) served as topic experts. A final report of the activity will be completed by Internews in the coming weeks. This activity contributes to the Road Safety in 10 Countries (RS10) Project, by seeking to enhance reporting on road safety related issues.
