The African Institute for Investigative Journalism (AIIJ) together with the Center for Health, Human Rights and Development (CEHURD) jointly implemented a media fellowship focused on SRHRs. The fellowship sought to build the capacity of the media to provide in-depth stories that question public policy decisions made in the national response to COVID-19 and how these impacted and continued to affect provisions and protection of SRHRs services and advocacy for the same. The key question navigated in this fellowship was; What was the impact of Uganda’s COVID-19 national response on access to key sexual and reproductive health services and advocacy for the same? The fellowship targeted 15 seasoned investigative journalists with a special interest in health systems, social justice, gender, human rights and public accountability. This fellowship opportunity provided the selected journalists with a four-month capacity building, support and mentorship opportunity to more effectively undertake in-depth reporting on SRHR stories that question public policy decisions made in the national COVID 19 pandemic and the impact on the provision and protection of SRHRs services and advocacy efforts.
