October 30, 2020

Rooted in Trust (RiT) is a USAID Bureau of Humanitarian Affairs (BHA)-funded project run by Internews to support humanitarian and public health agencies combat and manage the spread of rumours and misinformation about COVID- 19. In Lebanon, Internews is working with Maharat Foundation to collect and analyse rumours and misinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 disease.

In Lebanon, Internews is producing a bulletin for humanitarians that profiles commonly occurring and high-risk rumours from across social media sites in Lebanon and aims to provide humanitarian and public health agencies ideas for integrating and aligning their risk communication activities with community perspectives and the information needs of the community. Another bulletin is produced for the community that focuses on rumours that have been circulating within the community about COVID-19
