From 24-26 March, EJC implemented a practical training workshop in Nairobi for Kenyan journalists focused on health and development issues in collaboration with local project partner AfricaonAir. A total of 12 reporters from Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Kakamega and Mwingi participated representing media houses such as The Star newspaper, Nation Media Group, African Woman and Child Feature Services, The Standard Group, Kitui The People and Pwani FM. The workshop was led by AfricaonAir director Joseph Warungu and EJC trainer Hamadou Tidaine Sy and featured guest speaker Otula Owuor, a veteran Kenyan journalist, former Science Editor for the Daily Nation and currently the editor of Science Africa. Included in the itinerary was a reportage field visit to the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) in Nairobi, the national body responsible for overseeing all health research in Kenya. The participants were briefed by the KEMRI director and other senior scientists and then toured the production facility as well as three of their labs that deal with Polio, HIV and herbal medicine.
