04.09.04  |   Seeking Health Journalists with International HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Experience
Deadline: October 4, 2004

Irving International (II) is a media development company based out of London with representation in Washington, DC. Among other subjects, a particular specialty of II is the training of journalists in developing and transitional countries. The staff has trainers and consultants with many years of experience working with such private media organizations such as Reuters, BBC and Dow Jones as well as international development experience with USAID, Foundation Open Society Institute (OSI), the European Union and the Department for International Development (DFID) of the British government.

Through extensive research, II has found that many multisectoral approaches to the HIV/AIDS epidemic exist. Ironically, few of these endeavors actively engage indigenous journalists, whose profession by definition is to examine all aspects of a situation. Irving International is searching for the health journalism expertise to set up such projects in varied countries and address the journalistic aspects of these problems.

As a beginning, II plans health journalism training that results in completed indigenous features in print, radio and television. Accordingly, II is currently seeking CVs from health journalists with international experience and have a background profiling areas such as the following:
