Internews first developed rumor tracking methodology in 2014 in Liberia, in order to address the deadly Ebola outbreak. Since then, they have implemented rumor tracking as a way to address misinformation during humanitarian crises in numerous countries and contexts, reaching hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries.

The rumor tracking methodology includes three parts: Context, Case Studies, and a How To Guide.
