Fact-checking

Africa Check Dakar, working with Reporters Without Borders, will organise fact-checking workshops. Meedan, working with ARTICLE 19 and 5 fact-checking organisations in Sub-Saharan Africa, is building a unique coalition with epidemiologists, public health communications experts, technology companies and CSOs to create a database of COVID-19 facts and a repository of annotated misinformation. In combination with fact-checking workshops, these resources will enable journalists to provide accurate and reliable information on COVID-19.
