This Roundtable with Media in Karachi was part of Governance and Policy Advisors (GAP)  dialogue with those who shape public opinion on the challenges facing public health; their possible solutions as seen by health community and civil society organizations; and to create awareness in the media community to help turn these issues into political priorities before the elections. Meeting in Karachi focused on the media in Karachi and Hyderabad and was attended by a large number of morning show hosts. These morning shows –mostly broadcast from tv headquarters in Karachi- typically focus less on politics and more on social issues and issues of health, education and family are discussed more often. But in addition to morning show hosts, anchors of current affairs programs, health reporters, editors of ethnic media, columnists and social activists also attended.
