US journalism groups team up on global reporting

Two journalism organisations in the US are joining forces to promote stronger international news coverage.

The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University said Tuesday that it is forming a partnership with the Pulitzer Centre on Crisis Reporting to support international reporting initiatives. The collaboration will include a special focus on global health coverage.

Journalists from the Washington, DC-based Pulitzer Centre will also come to Harvard to discuss underreported international stories and hold an annual workshop for Nieman Fellows on effective use of multimedia platforms and social media.

Nieman launched a fellowship in global health reporting in 2006. Journalists in the program travel to developing countries to learn and report firsthand of health issues.
