A Data4Change initiative
About the initiative
Our rapid response task force consists of in-country data, design, tech, and journalism talent from the Data4Change alumni network. Together with social change organisations in each of the target countries, we are creating hyper-local COVID-19 (coronavirus) content to help inform citizens on measures they can take to prevent the spread of the virus and combat fake news and misinformation.
Our teams are using data and information published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other reputable sources. All the content we produce is covered by Creative Commons and can be used free of charge by social change organisations and activists.
