    Five journalists will be given the chance to interview the world’s top experts on health and the environment at the International EcoHealth Forum in Merida, Mexico, this December. The World Federation of Health Journalists, in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre, has announced a competition offering journalists a chance to cover the forum.

    The forum will bring together researchers, policy-makers and practitioners to discuss the impact of social and ecological changes on the global environment and, in turn, on human health. Special emphasis will be placed on “ecohealth” research in developing countries. The event will be held from December 1-5, 2007. For more information on the event, visit:

    To enter the competition to cover the event, you must send the following electronically to your CV, coordinates, copies of the identification pages of your passport, three articles or audio/video files on health and environmental issues (in the original language), and a one-page essay in English on why you should win the competition. The deadline for entering the competition is September 2, 2008.
