The Rooted in Trust project works to combat COVID-19 rumours and misinformation in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Philippines, Colombia, Mali, Sudan and South Sudan. Internews work to create impact at the local level and inform approaches to rumour management at the global level. The project is supported by a Global Technical Advisory team made up of media, humanitarian, data science and information management experts. In Phase 1 of the project, we collected more than 19 thousand rumors in 14 languages and supported more than 30 local trusted information providers. In this critical phase of the pandemic, we will build on these efforts to listen and respond to the information challenges faced by vulnerable groups in humanitarian contexts, encouraging open dialogue between citizens and scientists and stronger and more collaborative partnerships between information providers (such as local media) and humanitarian and health sources.
