Reporting on ovarian cancer: a journalist's guide

We have produced a guide for journalists reporting on ovarian cancer. At Target Ovarian Cancer, we're asking you to use this guide to help you report on ovarian cancer accurately and clearly, and to keep it handy, for future stories. 

Spokespeople who know their stuff

Whether it is a Target Ovarian Cancer spokesperson, a woman with ovarian cancer, or a leading health professional – you will find a depth of knowledge and opinion.

Case studies

Target Ovarian Cancer works with thousands of women with ovarian cancer. We can provide you with great case studies to bring your statistics to life or to create a specific feature about an impactful story.

Up-to-date statistics

We can help you report on new research and statistics, by putting them in perspective, and in plain English.

How we can help

Myth busting

We can help banish the myths surrounding ovarian cancer ‘risk factor’ links. Often the increase in risk is very small, or the study hasn’t attracted critical peer review to assess its validity. If in doubt, why not talk it through with us?

Great content

We can offer videos, B-roll, photography, graphics, links to our information standard-certified ovarian cancer advice and more for your use.
