Topic: Children in the media

Description: Have you ever seen a journalist in Pakistan reporting on children’s issues? Child abuse and diseases do find their space in the media, but what about so many other issues? Their security, privacy, education, child labour, mental health. Then there is the exposure of the children to images and stories wholly inappropriate to their age group, in the print and electronic media.

Why are positive stories about children not coming out? To address all these shortcomings, the media needs to be sensitized. Tazeen Javed, the project director of Intermedia, tells us about the project “Children in Media”.
