Nabeela Khan, who works with India’s first data-driven health website based in Okhla, bags international fellowship.
The Australian high commission and DataLEADS have selected three Indian journalists, including Nabeela Khan, for the International Health Media Fellowships.
The other two journalists are Dinesh C Sharma and Vidya Krishnan to avail the fellowship this year.
“Health is often a neglected subject in newsrooms. The fellowship will provide three shortlisted journalists an excellent chance to examine public health programmes in Australia more deeply,” said Syed Nazakat, founder of DataLEADS where Khan is deputy editor at Health Analytics India as reported by the HT.
The portal is India’s first data-driven journalism website dedicated to healthcare reporting and is headquartered in Okhla’s Jasola.
Khan holds MA in journalism from Jamia. Several Jamia alumni have excelled in the media over years.
Australian High Commissioner Harinder Sidhu said: “Australia and India have strong bilateral ties in health policy and research. The relationship was further strengthened by the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding on Health and Medicine, during the visit of Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.”
“The International Media Fellowship is the first cooperation activity after entering the MoU and will contribute to developing closer links in the deepening bilateral health relationship,” she added.
