Published by International Journalists' Network, this manual is designed to help journalists report on health issues in Uganda. The manual covers topics such as journalism and health in Uganda today, health policy reporting, corruption and waste in Uganda's health system, and reporting on medical science and research.
According to the publication, the goal for health in Uganda is to reduce morbidity from major cause of illness and reduce differences in health status through the delivery of an essential health care package. Although the manual is aimed primarily at journalists reporting in Uganda, its bibliography, lists of internet sources, and model health stories can be useful to journalists everywhere.
