Wan-Ifra will organize a webinar on the topic ‘Prevention is better than Cure – Why women don’t seek early health intervention’ on 3 March 2022 to mark International Women’s Day.
To enjoy a full and healthy life and give birth safely, women in the Asia Pacific not only need access to good health care. They also need to navigate social, cultural, and economic barriers that stand in the way of early diagnosis of preventable illness, including conditions that contribute to high maternal mortality.
To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March, this masterclass on Women’s Health Preventive Care is presented by the World Editors Forum’s Science in the Newsroom program, in partnership with Roche. It aims to help journalists understand the challenges women in the region can face in relation to getting tested for gynaecological cancers and other conditions that respond well to early diagnosis. To assist better reporting on the subject, it will explore diagnostic gaps and implications, including cascade effects on subsequent care, patient quality of life, and increased individual and public costs.
The masterclass will take a ‘solutions journalism’ approach to help reporters identify examples of best practices and will encourage a journalism-as-service approach to storytelling that empowers communities to make better-informed decisions about preventive care for women.
