Internews is working in Afghanistan to disrupt and mitigate the flow of misleading and inaccurate information for vulnerable populations affected by humanitarian crises during COVID-19. Internews' methodologies are part of the wider humanitarian Community Engagement and Accountability efforts that ensure that community perspectives are captured to inform Risk Communication strategies and that concerns, rumors and questions are addressed with reliable information that comes from, and is created by, local media or other reliable information providers on a variety of both traditional and social media platforms.
The Humanitarian Data Analyst (HDA) will help partners and/or team members to ensure qualitative data is collected in a consistent and continuous way, through community engagement activities like call-in radio shows, social media interactions, face-to-face interactions, including those by frontline aid workers, media and other channels as deemed relevant.
The HDA will also be responsible for collating, processing and analyzing feedback with a focus on the concerns, fears and hopes that are behind the rumors and drive misinformation, support the Internews team and its partners to address misinformation and provide input for feedback reports for humanitarian partners on national and regional levels to inform decision-making and improve the information provision with timely, locally-relevant and reliable information people trust.
