With funding from the H2H Network, Internews is responding to the spread of COVID-19 by combatting the spread of rumours and misinformation. This project aims to support busy newsrooms/journalists  with the resources and content they need to responsibly address misinformation in this crisis.

This project is in partnership with BBC Media ActionTranslators without Borders and Evidence Aid. With valuable support from Standby Task Force and Anthrologica.

The goals of the project are to:

  • Help journalists respond to misinformation with verified information from sources they can trust
  • Translate quality COVID-19 resources into local languages
  • Create engaging content to respond to community information gaps
