BIRN Albania Launches Call for Investigative Reports on Healthcare

Posted on

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania launched a call for investigative stories on May 20th.

The call is part of the program ‘Exposing Corruption in Albania,’ supported by the Open Society Foundation in Albania (OSFA).

In this call that closes on June 7, three journalists will be awarded a grant to cover their expenses while doing the investigation and writing the story on corruption and impunity related to healthcare.

Journalists will have about three months to dig deeper and research their ideas, but also will have the opportunity to work with experienced editors as their mentors to guide them through the process of writing to BIRN standards.

Until December 2016, other three more calls for investigations will be launched, covering topics on Organized Crime, Local Government and Public Administration.  

The call only applies to journalists from Albania.
