The Wits Centre for Journalism’s African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC) is offering grants to journalists to investigate health issues in seven African countries.

The grants are intended to enable and encourage knowledge and awareness of health issues among journalists, to encourage the exposure of health issues and to give journalists the time and resources to do in-depth, investigative reporting.

The organisation favours work which is in the public interest, aims to reveal new information, is in-depth and investigative in nature and uses innovative techniques, approaches or technologies. We encourage applications from both experienced and new journalists. The Wits Centre for Journalism may offer mentors for the less experienced.
