Mauritius Country Union

Thursday, March 25, 2010 - 12:41
In MAURITIUS, the Mauritius Union of Journalists (MUJ) currently has 40 members. The membership is not very active. Reporting on HIV/AIDS is a problem in Mauritius. 95% of the population has access to TV broadcasting. There is private ownership of media and government does not own any media house. Self-censorship is pervasive in Mauritius. Journalists do not report on sensitive religious issues. Working conditions in Mauritius are appalling and media owners hijack the agenda.

CHALLENGES: According to the MUJ, training on HIV/AIDS reporting is essential for its members. There is also a need for training on reporting on corruption. There is currently no full- time secretariat or trade union office.
