One of the challenges of the pandemic is to manage news and information carefully, so that people in different counties and who have different cultures, are able to trust the information they are being asked to use and work with. In this conversation Rosie Parkyn, Global Director of Impact for Internews, explains how they are meeting the challenge of supporting the international community and public information media providers as they responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. Rosie asks what makes for trusted information, and explores how myth busting is championed in different communities through locally relevant media.
