Kaiser Family Foundation/GlobalPost Partnership and Global Health Reporting Fellowships
In 2011, the Kaiser Family Foundation began a new partnership with GlobalPost to help support original reporting on global health policy issues. As part of the partnership, the Foundation is working with GlobalPost to support its coverage of global health, including reporting on U.S. global health policy issues. Through the partnership, GlobalPost also created Global Pulse, a blog which will examine the Global Health Initiative in the field. The Foundation is also sponsoring the work of three Kaiser/GlobalPost Global Health Reporting Fellows. The Fellows are completing paid internships in the U.S. and abroad starting in Spring 2011. The three fellows were chosen by GlobalPost and the Foundation from students and/or recent graduates of the Columbia Journalism School: Selena Ross, Lomi Kriel and Marija Karimjee.
Funding for this project is provided by the Foundation through its U.S. Global Health Policy program, which receives support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. GlobalPost operates independently and is responsible for all editorial content, including editorial decisions about what stories to cover and how to cover them. John Donnelly is the lead reporter/editor for the series, and the project is overseen by Charles Sennott, the executive editor at GlobalPost.
