New Ways: Reporting on HIV & AIDS Today
New Ways is a series of in-person and web-based trainings, fellowships and specially designed online resources to improve access to information on HIV & AIDS through a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These resources are designed to equip journalists covering issues and trends related to HIV & AIDS in new ways while reiterating the time-tested basics of talking, testing and treatment. With these resources, journalists in turn can better serve their viewers, readers and listeners with important information, especially those in communities and geographic areas most impacted by HIV & AIDS.
