ICFJ is recruiting applicants for its 2018 Johnson & Johnson global health reporting contest

About the contest:

The contest builds on its early successes by further developing local networks of leading health reporters in Brazil, China, India, Russia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Journalists in these countries have the opportunity to participate in a 12-day study tour in the United States. They also receive cash prizes as part of regional competitions to recognize high-quality coverage of maternal and child health, as well as other urgent health matters such as diseases and vaccinations. Six winners will be selected for the program in 2018.

Johnson & Johnson sponsors the Global Health Reporting Contest.
