Tobacco Control Fellowship

The investigative journalism fellowship program on tobacco control aims to intensify existing tobacco control advocacies (e.g. TC law implementation, tobacco taxation, and tobacco cultivation), by intensely scrutinizing the tobacco industry’s interferences against the tobacco control movement in Bangladesh.

An independent Fellowship Committee evaluates and selects fellows by maintaining standard procedures. The selected fellows are then trained through an orientation workshop on investigative journalism on tobacco control in Bangladesh. Finally, each of the fellows will produce series reports and publish/ telecast them in their respective media. At the end of the fellowship program, experience on tobacco control reporting will be shared by the fellows with wider audience.

Notably PROGGA introduced the Fellowship on Tobacco Control Investigative Journalism for the first time in Bangladesh in 2011 and will continue the trend in the coming years.
