Ms Rosebell Kagumire

Freelance contributing to regional media including Inter Press Service Africa, Uganda

I am a Ugandan multimedia journalist. I'm currently working on the completion of my master's study in Media, Peace and Conflict studies from the University for Peace in Costa Rica. I've worked with different Ugandan media covering conflicts, health and climate change issues for Daily Monitor, NTV Uganda, The Independent News Magazine and Uganda Radio Network. I contribute articles for regional media including Inter Press Service Africa.

I have written for Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) and the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ). My blog - under Rosebell’s blog- won the first African journalist blogging awards hosted by Panos West Africa in 2009. I have also been a VOICE fellowship blogger funded by Oxfam to blog about Millennium Development Goals in September 2010.
