World Pulse to Shine Spotlight on Newborn Health in Ethiopia
World Pulse Managing Editor Corine Milano joins a select group of nine U.S. journalists who are reporting on newborn and maternal health in Ethiopia with the International Reporting Project. The two-week long reporting trip (June 14-27) examines Ethiopia's efforts to prevent newborn deaths, and provides an overview of maternal and child health, immunizations, nutrition, communicable diseases, and health care provision.
Ethiopia has made important strides in the field of newborn health. This trip will provide the opportunity to explore how these advances can be replicated in other nations and identify advice Ethiopian women have for women in other regions who face similar challenges.
While in Ethiopia, Corine is connecting with members of World Pulse’s online community to highlight their voices on these important issues. She is focused on bringing to light the stories of grassroots women leaders and she aims to tell the personal stories behind harrowing statistics of maternal and infant health.
Follow Corine’s reports throughout the trip on World Pulse and stay tuned for our next emagazine devoted to coverage of newborn and maternal health in Ethiopia.
