The Africa Media Network on Health (AMNH) will host its inaugural annual AMNH Excellence in Health Journalism Awards 2019 for journalists who have demonstrated outstanding merit in health reporting. The AMNH is a network of highly acclaimed journalists and editors from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda Zambia and Malawi who are reporting on health systems strengthening at their respective countries and at the Africa regional level.

The AMNH is a brainchild of Health Systems Advocacy Partnership project – a consortium of partners – Amref Health Africa, the African Center for Global Health and Social Transformation, Health Action International, Wemos, and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation. The AMNH seeks to hold African leaders accountable to their national, regional and global health commitments and to ensure transparency in health expenditures. They also ensure that health policies are properly understood and implemented by duty bearers.

At the gala dinner, AMNH will also be launching a Model Curricula for Journalism Education: A Certificate in Health Reporting. This course will be offered at Amref International University.
