HIVR4P 2018 provides fellowships to attend and cover the conference to approximately 25 journalists from around the world. The Journalist Fellowship program is designed to help build journalist capacity to report on biomedical HIV prevention and advances and challenges in prevention research, especially in communities that are heavily impacted by the epidemic.
As part of the fellowship, journalists participate in a two-day, onsite workshop with leaders in various fields of biomedical prevention research, designed to help them better understand and report on research developments from the conference. The Journalist Fellowship program began at the 2009 AIDS Vaccine program and has become a central part of the global effort to encourage informed, high-quality media coverage of HIV and support the journalists and news organizations that make that reporting possible.
