About National Journalism funds NJF’s

National journalism fund (NJF) is a type of fund that has a strategic sectoral purpose, and in which governments could play an anchoring and catalytic role, complementing and reinforcing other policy measures.

NJFs are structures that enable governments to provide arm’s length support, without compromising the editorial independence of media that receive support from the fund.

They are designed partly to correct market failures or imbalances and partly to shape or even create aspects of the market, have been established in various forms in several countries and are currently under active discussion in countries including Armenia, Brazil, Sierra Leone, and South Africa.
