Media Workshop on Urban Health

HERD conducted three Media Workshops on Urban Health from December 12 to 14, 2013 in Kathmandu, December 16 to 18, 2013 in Pokhara and January 11 to 13, 2014 in Biratnagar. The participants of the workshop were journalists working in print media, radio and television.  A total of 52 journalists (13 in Kathmandu, 19 in Pokhara and 20 in Biratnagar) participated in the workshop.

The workshop focused on highlighting the necessity of improved coverage of urban health issues in the media. HERD had conducted a baseline study of media monitoring of 10 publications (8 dailies and 2 weeklies) before the workshop. The study findings were presented during the workshop. During the workshop, the journalists were also taken for a field visit to the slums to have field based experience of health issues of slum dwellers.

These workshops were conducted with the support of COMDIS - HSD and Primary Health Care Revitalization Division of the Ministry of Health and Population.
