Our work in Africa

Africa’s diverse media is developing fast. There’s a growing awareness of how radio and TV can be used by people to question leaders and hold governments to account, and access to mobile phones and the internet is rapidly increasing.

We are committed to supporting the development of African media. We work with African journalists, broadcasters, government agencies and non-governmental organisations. We use media and communication to provide life-saving information in response to emergencies, inform people about health issues and help support free and fair elections.
