In Sub-Saharan Africa, Internews responds to access to information needs for the marginalized and vulnerable. In Kenya, we strengthen community knowledge by ensuring free, easy access to high quality maternal health information. In South Sudan and Central African Republic, we respond to information needs during humanitarian and political crises. In Democratic Republic of Congo, we support community radio stations to be more professional and more sustainable, and we work on the entire media environment to make sure citizens receive information and voices from diverse sources and channels. In this country, we also work to have more stories and voices from, for and about women. In Cote d’Ivoire Internews support human rights organizations including LGBTI rights organizations to communicate better with the media and through the media. We champion coverage that doesn’t stigmatize. In Liberia, we focus on improving the media regulatory and legal environment. Everywhere we work with media, social media and civil society to improve content on democracy and governance elections, interfaith issues, and community reconciliation.
