What we do

We are proud to fund innovative and compelling journalism

The programme “Global Health Journalism Grants for Germany” is a project operated by the European Journalism Centre (EJC). This is the last round of the grant programme which aims to advance creative reporting approaches, enabling a better coverage of international health, health policy and development related issues in German media.

The European Journalism Centre will award around 12 more stipends worth €180,000 to freelance and staff journalists in this last round.

This programme is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project rewards quality journalism and advances a new and distinctive agenda for development coverage on health topics through the award of funding to a selection of state-of-the-art reporting projects of great impact and high visibility.

From 2016 to date, the EJC has been running this Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for Germany, with 43 projects funded so far. Equally, a Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for France was launched in spring of 2018, and 23 projects have been awarded in two rounds so far. A new call for applications for France is launched simultaneously.
