The United Nations Millennium Campaign (UNMC), PANOS West Africa and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty Ghana (GCAP) recently organized a 3-day training workshop for journalists on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The workshop concluded on Saturday with a call from Ms. Sylvia Mwichuli, Acting Deputy Director of the African Office of the UNMC, for journalists to go beyond reporting straight news and engage in more evidence-based coverage of the MDG issues. The workshop was attended by journalists from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Ghana who explored the roles for journalists in creating awareness surrounding the Millennium Development Goals.
