I am excited to announce that the International Reporting Project (IRP) invited me on their trip to next month in India. Ten of us will travel between Mumbai and Delhi to cover issues on child survival in India. Topics we will cover will include vaccinations, HIV/AIDS, access to clean water and hygiene and health care. The IRP has a proud history of covering under-reported issues in under-covered nations, and it is exciting to be part of this group. The trip will start February 17 and conclude February 27. I have always been reticent to cover any issue in India because I have never visited, so this is an incredible opportunity.
