lanigroup - November 3, 2018 - 0 comments

The virtual training programme which took place on the 15th of May 2020 was brought about by a need for a quick intervention to address the current information crisis in the country with regards the COVID-19 pandemic. LANI Foundation in partnership with Breakthrough Action-Nigeria and in conjunction with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) organized this 1-day training based on a needs assessment survey to close this information gap. This training centred on ensuring effective reporting on COVID-19 via various media channels across various groups of people especially in the grassroots in order to improve compliance with safety directives in Nigeria.

Impact: Over 74 FRCN participants and other media personnel were trained and furnished with information and skills needed to provide effective and factual reports on the pandemic via Zoom.
