Asian Fact-Checkers Network

Black Dot Research led the formation of the Asian Fact-Checkers Network (AFCN) in 2021 to bring together key fact-checking organisations from around Asia to come together to collaborate, share best practices and exchange expertise in order to collectively tackle the constantly evolving and rising threat of misinformation and disinformation, commonly known as “fake news”, in the region.
