The Africa-China Reporting Project (the Project) at Wits Journalism is inviting journalists to submit proposals for reporting grants of up to US$1,500 for investigations focused on public health and related issues

The Project provides capacity building and facilitation in the form of reporting grants, workshops and other opportunities for journalists to investigate complex dynamics and uncover untold stories. Journalists are encouraged to emphasize on-the-ground impact and perspectives to illustrate how the lives of Africa’s people are changing amid the comprehensive phenomenon of Africa-China interactions.

In the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing impact in Africa, the Project invites journalists to submit proposals investigating current ground-level responses, capacity, successes/failures, shortcomings, services and collaborations in African countries, communities and organisations.

The following are potential focus areas to guide applicants:

  • Current state of preparedness in Africa for the COVID-19 epidemic
  • Existing state of public/private health services and programmes in Africa and expected requirements to deal with extreme crises and pandemics such as COVID-19
  • Current interaction, exchange and engagement between African and Chinese or foreign health professionals, practitioners, companies and institutions. Application in Africa of knowledge and successful measures used to fight the pandemic in China and elsewhere
  • Use of Chinese and other foreign health technology in Africa
  • Inspiring role models, humanitarians, innovators and advocates in the current climate of the African public health sector
  • Investigations of xenophobia and stigma inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health issues
  • Local community health solutions, capacity and measures in African countries
  • Application of public health best practices in Africa
  • Public health data and measuring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The impact of media coverage on pandemics and best practices for journalists for covering pandemics

These are suggested topics but journalists can also pursue others, as long as the focus is within the broad Africa-China public health framework.
