450 views

On 8 April 2014, Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health, announced the winners of the fifth EU Health Prize for Journalists. Out of more than 850 articles entered into the competition, 28 national finalists were chosen by juries in each EU country. Amidst the shortlist of 28 excellent articles, the winners are: First place: Henk Blanken writing for Dagblad van het Noorden (the Netherlands) for his article “Carel’s Head", a story which follows a young man suffering from Parkinson's disease from diagnosis to treatment, and gives a detailed and emotional account of the pioneering surgery he receives. Second place: Christiane Hawranek and Marco Maurer, writing for Die Zeit (Germany) for their sharp, ‘documentary-style’ article “The Patient Traffickers” which highlights dubious practices in non-regulated medical care across borders. Third place: Mette Dahlgaard writing for the Berlingske newspaper (Denmark) for “Am I Killing Someone?”, the story of a sperm donor who discovers that he carries the gene for a highly hereditary form of cancer, but hits a brick wall when he tries to find a way of warning potential children who could be affected.
