Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

Corruption of the health care system puts millions of lives in peril. Reporters from Nigeria and Venezuela look at how multiple sources of fraud, extortion, malfeasance, and apathy hobble national programs and waste government funds. And the Fortune series, Dirty Money, exposes lax oversight which allowed a corrupt drug maker in India to export a poor quality generic drug sold around the world.
