Defending and promoting freedom of expression as a fundamental human right
Our Right to Information and COVID-19

The global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has been accompanied by a surge in misinformation, disinformation, and, in some countries, government censorship, at a time when access to factual and timely information has perhaps never been so important.

IFEX members around the world are working hard to ensure respect for human rights and open, safe, and equitable access to reliable information, both online and offline, at this critical time. 

Check out our Access to Information hub to stay up to date with their important work.
