Call for Reporting Proposals on Global Health Topics
We are seeking ambitious, enterprise reporting projects on global health and the future of the global development agenda. We are maintaining our ongoing interest in reproductive health, food security, sanitation, and HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. We are also looking for proposals that surface new or neglected issues and perspectives in global health.
Projects should engage the public, advance understanding among policymakers, and whenever possible, tie into current policy discussions. The reporting should focus on why and how; descriptive projects are not sufficient.
Partnerships between journalists who specialize in different media are encouraged, as are teams of staff journalists. Applicants should consider incorporating data visualization, for which the Pulitzer Center has in-house expertise if needed.
Proposals must include a credible plan for broad distribution of the resulting work. Applicants should demonstrate interest from editors or producers working in wide-reaching U.S. or European news media outlets. Letters from editors or producers who have worked with you in the past, and are interested in working with you again, are encouraged.
For journalists interested in critical reporting on apparently successful responses to social problems, editorial guidance will be available from Tina Rosenberg and David Bornstein of the Solutions Journalism Network and The New York Times Fixes blog.
Before applying, please review our website and others to ensure that you are proposing a unique project or one that builds on past reporting.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Kendeda Fund, the Pulitzer family and anonymous donors have generously provided funding for this initiative.
