Staff changes and happy announcements at Health-e News

Health-eA former news editor of The Star and senior reporter at eNCA, Gill has won a number of major journalist awards including the print category of the coveted CNN African News Journalist of the Year in 2004.

Amy Green, who has already made her name as a health reporter at the Mail & Guardian, supplements our writing team.

Masutane Modjadji joins Health-e as the OurHealth Citizen Journalist Manager. Masutane, who has worked at Africa Check and ANN7, says her heart belongs to rural South Africa, which is why she is so excited to be working with our network of citizen journalists in villages and small towns throughout South Africa.

Healthy Living Alliance

Tracey Malawana joins us on our exciting obesity prevention campaign. Tracey is the national deputy chairperson of Equal Education, and has been working as a community organiser for EE. She will be co-ordinating the Healthy Living Alliance (heala.org).

Lindiwe Msibi, who started as a citizen journalist with Health-e News in August last year, has come on board fulltime as our Intern Office Administrator.

Health-e also has two new board members, Phillip Mokoena, former COO of the Treatment Action Campaign, now with Mother2Mother and Sasha Stevenson, an attorney with SECTION27.

We are proud to announce that our intern reporter Thabo Molelekwa – who earlier this year was named an International HIV Prevention Reporting Fellow with the International Centre for Journalists and a finalist in the Discovery Health Journalism Awards – won the Vodacom regional journalist of the year award along with Sbo Nkosi. He also recently qualified as a feature writer at UCT.

Congratulations

Finally, we congratulate our former OurHealth manager, Sibongile Nkosi, who left us on a Chevening Scholarship to do her Masters degree in economics at Sussex University. We are very proud of Sbo and all she has achieved in building the citizen journalist project.
