The Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) is now receiving entries for the journalism fellowship on its #TransFatFreeNigeria Campaign.
The fellowship supported by the Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI), is part of CAPPA’s efforts to build the capacity of the Nigerian media to report on trans fat. The fellowship is focused on ways to eliminate trans fat from Nigeria’s food supply from an informed perspective, in line with the World Health Organisation’s recommended standards for countries to follow.
The fellowship is also aimed at building and improving the public’s awareness on trans fat and world best practices regarding its use as well as other issues relating to it.
For the purpose of this fellowship, CAPPA is inviting journalists in Nigeria to send in story ideas focusing on:
Trans fat content in food
Trans fat and well being
Industry players and food labeling
Distinguishing trans fat enhancing cardiovascular diseases and implications of the treatment of such in Nigeria
