About the UN Foundation Press fellowship
Applications are open for the UN Foundation Press Fellowship on Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights & Justice to Women Deliver 2023. The United Nations Foundation’s Universal Access Project is hosting a press fellowship focused on sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice (SRHRJ) to Women Deliver (WD2023) in Kigali, Rwanda from July 17-20, 2023.
The Women Deliver 2023 conference comes at a critical time when sexual and reproductive health and rights are under threat in the U.S. and abroad. The location in Rwanda, which has made strides in expanding reproductive health access, offers an opportunity to explore country-level progress and challenges in making sexual and reproductive health and rights a reality for all.
Selected journalists will have the opportunity to explore the myriad issues that feed into sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice. Journalists will also attend a local site visit the day before the conference (to be confirmed) as well as exclusive briefings with experts, including those from UN agencies and global policymakers, global and local NGO leaders, and world-renowned researchers.
- The fellowship will cover travel, food and lodging costs for the duration of the conference and any site visits beforehand, to be determined.
- Open to journalists who work for U.S. media outlets;
- They should be interested in global sexual and reproductive health issues, international development, U.S. foreign policy, and the United Nations.
