was launched by the United Nations in response to the COVID crisis to cut through the noise to deliver life-saving information, fact-based advice and stories from the best of humanity.

Our Mission

As the world confronts its biggest challenge in living memory, there has never been a greater need for accurate, verified information. Like the virus itself, misinformation spreads from person-to-person, heightening the risk to health and spreading fear and division. The world cannot contain the disease and its impacts without access to trusted, accurate information that promotes science and real solutions – and builds solidarity within and between nations.

Verified is an initiative of the United Nations, in collaboration with Purpose, to cut through the noise to deliver life-saving information on COVID-19 and stories from the best of humanity.

Over 1 Billion


Since May 2020, Verified has reached over one billion people around the world with reliable, accurate information about COVID-19.

By promoting and sharing Verified messages, people are playing a crucial role in spreading reliable information about COVID-19 to their friends, families and social networks, with the goal of saving lives and countering misinformation.

Organisations, businesses, civil society and media platforms around the world collaborate with Verified to spread information that helps protect people, communities and forges connections across the planet.
