Welcome to the first edition of Connect:COVID-19. This weekly digest will connect you with quality resources and fact-checked information designed to combat misinformation in the COVID-19 crisis.
This bulletin is designed to support busy newsrooms, fact-checking organisations, and non-profits across South East Asia and beyond. We link you with the tools you need to provide your communities with accurate, timely and actionable information.
Who are we? We are a group of four organisations who work to improve access to quality information in a crisis.
Find out more about our organisations here:
We’re funded by the H2H Network, a group of approximately 50 organisations worldwide. Its members provide specialist services to ensure crisis response is more efficient, effective and accountable. The H2H Network is supported by aid from the UK Government and hosted by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC).
We make two promises. To be brief - we know many people are facing an information overload at this time. And to be practical – our support, content, and resources are free to use and can be adapted for context and language preferences.
If you have any questions, requests for resources, feedback or would like to let us know when our tools have been useful, you can email us at any time at COVIDemail@example.com
