The EJC has given me the time and resources to do two investigations that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. Now people know that blood samples collected during the 2013-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa have been exported all over the world. This started a global discussion.

How to feed 10 billion people in 2050? Big questions like this one tend to be overlooked in a newsroom where there's always a deadline in sight. The EJC funding enabled us to take a step back, create a dedicated platform and really delve deep into this question that will change our lives drastically in the coming decades

The EJC global health reporting grant came right in time – a time when quality oriented (health) journalism seemed to be no longer affordable for many outlets in and beyond Germany. Having been supported three times in a row gave me the unique opportunity to focus on pressing global health challenges and do in depth research on topics like aging populations, culturally triggered genetic disorders and mental health issues in low income settings. Nowadays being given the time to truly investigate stories was a pure luxury for me – even though it shouldn’t be that way

The Publisher Grant was a catalyst for As Equals, CNN’s series on gender inequality. Its support meant we could focus on the least developed parts of the world and gave us the scope to go big on a single issue and produce ambitious pieces of impactful visual storytelling.
