The Henry Nxumalo Foundation and the African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC) are offering grants to journalists to investigate health and development issues in six African countries: Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa

The grants, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are intended to enable and encourage high quality investigative reporting on health and development issues in African countries, to encourage the exposure of roadblocks to achieving health and development and to give journalists the time and resources to do this kind of reporting. Grants will range from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the scope of the investigation, and the work must be completed within three months.
