FEDERATION OF AFRICAN JOURNALISTS
11 SEPTEMBER 2014
The Federation of African Journalists (FAJ) and the West Africa Journalists Association (WAJA) have today called on the International and African media to exercise a balanced and proper coverage of the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa.
The West African Journalists Association (WAJA) has today extended its condolences and solidarity with the governments and peoples in the sub-region affected by the Ebola outbreak, and calls on the media to double its support in fighting back the virus. WAJA says the media is under social and ethical obligation to serve the greater good of humanity in these critical times of heightened fear of death caused by the rapid spread of the disease in the region.
During 1999 more than 80 journalists and media staff were killed or murdered making it one of the worst years on record says the International Federation of Journalists and the International Press Institute.
