Wan-Ifra webinar — Prevention is better than cure

Why women don’t seek early health intervention?

Wan-Ifra webinar on Prevention is better than cure - why women don’t seek early health intervention.

Wan-Ifra will organize a webinar on the topic ‘Prevention is better than Cure – Why women don’t seek early health intervention’ on 3 March 2022 to mark International Women’s Day.

To enjoy a full and healthy life and give birth safely, women in the Asia Pacific not only need access to good health care. They also need to navigate social, cultural, and economic barriers that stand in the way of early diagnosis of preventable illness, including conditions that contribute to high maternal mortality.

To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March, this masterclass on Women’s Health Preventive Care is presented by the World Editors Forum’s Science in the Newsroom program, in partnership with Roche. It aims to help journalists understand the challenges women in the region can face in relation to getting tested for gynaecological cancers and other conditions that respond well to early diagnosis. To assist better reporting on the subject, it will explore diagnostic gaps and implications, including cascade effects on subsequent care, patient quality of life, and increased individual and public costs.

The masterclass will take a ‘solutions journalism’ approach to help reporters identify examples of best practices and will encourage a journalism-as-service approach to storytelling that empowers communities to make better-informed decisions about preventive care for women.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
