The Bhekisisa Centre for Health Journalism is based at the Mail & Guardian newspaper in Johannesburg, South Africa. We offer solutions-based reporting and opinion on health issues in Africa.
If you have a tip-off or story idea you'd like to share with us, you can email our reporters.
We welcome informed opinion pieces on broadly health related subjects from individuals and teams working at universities, government agencies, aid agencies and other organisations based in Africa. If you would like to submit an opinion piece for consideration, please contact us directly to discuss. Because we are solutions-based, we always prefer opinion pieces that describe what we can learn from attempts to address entrenched social issues.
If you are a journalist seeking to write a health feature, please refer to the Work With Us page.
