Reporters Without Orders Ep 288: Cervical cancer in Mizoram, protests for tribal status

A reporters’ podcast about what made news and what shouldn’t have.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week, host Basant Kumar is joined by The Quint’s Himanshi Dahiya and independent journalist Anand Dutta.

Himanshi talks about her report on Mizoram’s struggle to protect women from cervical cancer. She explains how stigma, poor health infrastructure, and religious beliefs have made the situation worse.

Anand reported on how 233 caste groups and communities across the country are demanding tribal status. He says the issue is also being politicised, which could have a “fatal impact on our society”.

Tune in.
