The IFES program Media Empowering Disability Inclusion and Access (MEDIA) includes a training curriculum and guidelines that address the impact media can have on building disability-inclusive societies. The guidelines provide practical knowledge about story angles, terminology and etiquette in writing about persons with disabilities in elections.

Journalists receive quick reference tools from the training, such as a guide to person-first language and story ideas on inclusive elections. When possible, IFES follows this training with a contest for the best photo or article. IFES has conducted trainings in Georgia, Fiji, Haiti, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Myanmar and Nepal.
