SciDev.Net is inviting you to a live webinar: The COVID-19 pandemic: Lessons for Science Journalism in Africa. This webinar, lasting approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, will cover: • Lessons for the acquisition, verification and dissemination of reliable information; • Lessons for effective interaction between scientists and journalists; and • Lessons for the training and capacity building of science journalists. Our panel of reputable journalists and public health experts will explore the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has presented to science journalism and attempt to answer the following questions: 1. In the context of Africa, what lessons have been learnt on the challenges and the need for the acquisition, verification and dissemination of reliable information on COVID-19? 2. What lessons have been learnt from the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic on the possible avenues or mechanisms for achieving effective interaction between scientists and journalists in the reportage of public health information? 3. What does the quality of reporting on COVID-19 by media houses in Africa imply for the training and capacity building of science journalists? The webinar will be broadcast in English with a French audio link providing a French language translation simultaneously. Please find attached concept note and below banners for the event.
