Internews Humanitarian Media Roster

Internews Humanitarian Media Roster | Top sites for journalists | Scoop.it

Internews is looking for professionals to join the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster to respond to crises and emergencies around the world.

During humanitarian disasters people affected by the unfolding tragedy need more than physical necessities. They also have an urgent need for information. In the aftermath of a crisis, from earthquakes, to armed conflicts, survival can depend on knowing the answers to essential questions. Should I stay with my family or go for help? Where is the nearest health facility? What is the extent of the damage? Where can I get clean water? What are the symptoms of cholera? Is it safe to go back home?

To strengthen its immediate response capacity in emergency situations, Internews’ Humanitarian Information Project (HIP) has created a standing roster of humanitarian communication experts and media professionals.
