WHO launches the African Infodemic Response Alliance

 The World Health Organization’s  Regional Office in Africa joined forces with intergovernmental and governmental organisations, as well as non-state actors across the continent to launch AIRA, to respond to infodemic threats at regional and country levels. Regional activities are critically important for effective infodemic management, and AIRA is an example of this.

AIRA’s new website contains news, FAQs, videos, infographics and more aimed at fighting the disinformation ‘infodemic’ around Covid-19 on the continent.
