MOH Official Says Networking Key To Health Reporting
By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, August 18 (LINA) –The Communications Director at the Ministry of Health has admonished journalists reporting on health and health-related issues to cultivate the culture of networking in order to make impact in society.

Mr. Sorbor George said if journalists are to enjoy public confidence and respect from consumers of their work, health reporters must work as a team and carry out routine follow-ups on health issues with the relevant health authorities.

George made the call when he served as a panelist at the start of a three-day training session for the 2016 Internews Health Journalism Fellows at a local hotel in Monrovia on Wednesday.

He spoke on the topic: "How to Access Information, Quotes and Sources."

He told the Fellows that networking will make it easier for them to be on top of the issues and not to wallow in speculations, pointing out that this can only be achieved if they develop the culture of follow-ups.

The training is the second in a series being carried out by Internews under its project called “Information Saves Lives” sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development, and Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3).

The first training was held from June 21-23.

The Internews 2016 Journalism Health Reporting Fellowship will last for the next six months with fellows being charged to report one quality health story every month.
