MISA Zambia is a membership- driven organisation which has been in existence since 1995 as part of a regional body. Membership of MISA Zambia is open to both institutions and individuals.
MISA Zambia has been working to promote a sustainable, non-partisan, independent, plural and diverse media that informs and empowers society, promotes democracy, good governance and freedom of expression in an ethical, competent and professional manner.
We have also been working to promote a media friendly environment, free of legal impediments to accessing and disseminating information, which the public need in order to make informed decisions concerning their welfare and development. Furthermore, the organisation strives to promote access to public information and freedom of expression.
“The ability of journalists to report freely on matters of public interest is a crucial indicator of democracy.”
