Most of the stories you read on this site come from newspapers, news agencies and publications all over the African continent. We aggregate and distribute the reporting of more than 130 media organizations. Our aim is to reflect the diversity of reporting, analysis and commentary from as many as possible of the influential media in every country.

They include government and opposition-controlled papers, as well as the growing number of independent, professional news publications across the continent. In this way, we provide access to a full range of what Africans themselves are saying, thinking and publishing -- a unique compilation of information that is valuable to policy makers, businesses, non-governmental organizations, scholars and journalists, as well as to the general public.

In addition to providing access to Africa's media coverage, AllAfrica also publishes original reporting by our editorial team of award-winning journalists. Those stories are labeled "" All other stories are labeled with the name of the originating source.
