The Bhekisisa Centre for Health Journalism is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Bhekisisa is one of only a few media outlets in the Global South specialising in solutions-based narrative features and analysis. We not only uncover problems but also critically evaluate the solutions meant to fix them.

It’s an approach that we carry through to the opinion pieces we commission and accept from activists, citizens, researchers and policymakers. Thinking about pitching a possible op-ed? Make sure to read our guidelines first.

  • Have a tip-off or story idea you’d like to share with us?
  • Interested in booking one of our journalists to moderate your next panel or comment on a story?
  • Keen on getting your staff up to speed on how to meaningfully engage with media through a Bhekisisa training?
