Trustworthy health information is a vital service in its own right.

Internews supports information that is vital to the effective delivery of global health services. For 40 years, we have worked to ensure access to the accurate and timely information that people need to make the best decisions for themselves, their families and their communities.

Our Approach

Internews supports journalists with the tools and training to understand scientific advances in health, to counter stigma and challenge societal norms through using human stories and voices in their health reporting and to watchdog government health policies and services. From basic health reporting to data journalism, community engagement and rumor tracking, our bespoke training and mentoring programs promote vibrant health conversations between local media, health providers and the communities they serve and provide avenues for community health concerns to be heard and addressed.

Health Projects

We respond to epidemics and pandemics with accurate information needed to make rapid decisions; and provide journalists with the tools to help people make healthy choices in the long term.

The current global COVID-19 epidemic features mechanisms of delivery of scientific information that are frankly unprecedented, adding to pressure for proper interpretation by the media and public. It’s time to put information in the driver’s seat of global and national epidemic responses.”
