Why Health Writers and Editors Convention

HEAL Foundation has a legacy of engaging and educating health writers and journalists of the country for over 10 years now. Not too long ago, health was a beat which did not have dedicated journalists to cover it. Hence, HEAL played a crucial role in educating the journalists about importance of covering health issues and health news accurately. We conducted over 100 workshops for small groups of health writers on regional levels – educating them about one or two issues at a time.

Soon we felt the need to bring health writers together on a larger platform to cover a wider range of health related subjects. Hence, Health Writers and Editors Convention was organised with the additional objective of facilitating networking opportunities among health writers of the country.
