With the objective to sensitize Caribbean Media Practitioners to the implications of gender and ethnic inequialities on health, GEH organized the Caribbean Media Awards that aimed to build capacitiy of the media practitioners in print, voice or video, in gender mainstreaming so as to empower them to become worthy advocates.

Also, in this context, a training with 13 journalists on gender equality and women's empowerment was held in 2007.

The winner's media pieces (print articles in 2008, and radio programs in 2007) were used as tools for advocacy and as information to sensitize the wider Caribbean sub-region on gender and ethnic inequalities on health.
