This publication brings together stories, podcasts and artwork from #JusticeCOVID, a social journalism project investigating the health and wellbeing of prisoners and their families during the COVID19-pandemic.
#JusticeCOVID has put the spotlight on issues such as institutional racism, human rights abuses, and a lack of transparency and accountability by governments and others involved in the prison-industrial complex. It also showcases the leadership provided by many community members and organisations.
This series was supported by the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas.
Croakey Health Media – Informed, indepth coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic
On 28 January, when we published our first article about the new respiratory infection, “Catch up with useful news and sources on the new coronavirus”, 107 deaths had been reported globally. At that time, the pace of developments was so rapid, our priority was to connect our readers with useful sources of updates.
We publish this analysis of our first four months of covering the pandemic to acknowledge and thank all those who have contributed to our coverage and wider public debate. We also thank those organisations and individuals whose funding support enables this work at such a critical time.
