Applications open for the WHO/Science Africa Road Safety Reporting Training

The World Health Organization (WHO) and Science Africa are organizing a three-day training workshop for journalists in Nairobi, Kenya, scheduled for 16-18 July 2024. The workshop will also mark the official launch of the WHO Africa Regional Report on Road Safety.
