The Health Finance and Governance Briefing Kit

Writing health finance and governance stories can be challenging. Health finance is riddled with complex language, technical economic terms, and numbers – not necessarily a journalist’s comfort zone. The right sources for these stories can be difficult to identify and unwilling to talk. Data may be difficult to locate or to understand. And while corruption makes for splashy headlines, the broader systemic challenges of health governance are not widely understood – and yet they are important.

Media also played a role in intensifying the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the mid-90s.
