‘Be Sensitive On Post-Ebola Reporting’ -Fahnbulleh 
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, August 27 (LINA) - Liberian journalists should be sensitive in reporting issues that will move the country forward in its post-Ebola recovery drive, the Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal and Newborn Health in Liberia has advised.

Veteran Liberian musician Miata Fahnbulleh said it is unfortunate that journalists were reporting the Ebola crisis in Liberia without being sensitive to the plight of those directly affected by the disease by projecting images of victims on television.

Fahnbulleh sounded the caution Thursday at the start of a two-day seminar for radio journalists and technicians on professional production techniques and Ebola sensitive reporting held at a local hotel in Monrovia.

She said the media is a powerful institution that can change any situation confronting a nation at a given time, adding that Liberian journalists should be sensitive in reporting issues relating to epidemics and the people affected by these epidemics.

Meanwhile, the Project Coordinator of the West Africa Democracy Radio (WADR), Agnes Thomasi, has said the entity’s aim is to promote African stories that would foster development in the region.

Thomasi stressed that communication can bring about development in every aspect of society and transform any negative situation, adding, “WADR is trying to create that space for West Africans to develop their region.”

The two-day seminar, which is organized by the Dakar-based WADR and funded by OXFAM, brought together over 25 journalists from community and national radio stations.
