How we fact-check

Africa Check is a nonpartisan organisation committed to promoting accuracy in public debate and the media in Africa. To do this effectively, we follow the best practices in fact-checking, recognised by the world’s leading nonpartisan fact-checking organisations. We adhere to the International Fact-Checking Network’s fundamental operating principles of commitment to impartiality, transparency and accuracy.

How this shapes our work

Every report we produce is different, but we ensure we fact-check all claims fairly and to the same standard. The process we follow is always the same. This ensures that our findings can be replicated and verified. 

We need your help to fight misinformation
