Thomson Reuters Foundation calls application for Reporting on Malaria in Africa. Thomson Reuters Foundation calls African journalists, who are motivated to report on malaria, the opportunity to take part in a new remote training initiative, Reporting on Malaria in Africa. This remote course will begin on Monday, 07 September, and end on Friday, 25 September.
