BBG Development in partnership with the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow, Russia, is hosting a seminar for Russian journalists on migration issues, 10-13 April, 2012. The seminar is held on the sidelines of the HSE International Conference on Migration In Host Countries, 12 April.
Six months after the launch of “Votre Sante Votre Avenir” (Your Health, Your Future) on May 12, 2011, VOA’s new health program, writer and host Khalil Gueye and Producer Fatouma Kalala travelled to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where they joined the show’s local coordinator Chouchou Kahowa, to organize a series of town halls conferences in Kinshasa, Kananga, Lubumbashi and Goma. These town halls included live audience- taped radio and television versions of “Votre Sante Votre Avenir” in girl’s schools and University Campuses. In addition, local journalists and health reporters were trained on best practices in HIV/AIDS reporting.
