Media Institute of Southern Africa

The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) is a dynamic, member-driven network of national chapters coordinated by a professional regional secretariat which seeks through monitoring, training, capacity building, research and the distribution of information to foster free, independent and diverse media throughout southern Africa.

MISA is a voluntary, non-profit making organisation launched in 1992 mainly by the independent media in the SADC member states.

MISA is a dynamic, member-driven network of national chapters co-ordinated by a professional regional secretariat which seeks through monitoring, training, capacity building, research and the distribution of information to foster free, independent and diverse media throughout southern Africa in service of democracy and development. This is in accordance with the 1991 Windhoek Declaration on an Independent and Pluralistic African Press, which highlights the vital role free and pluralistic media play in social, political and economic development.

The role of MISA is primarily one of a co-ordinator, facilitator and communicator, and for this reason MISA aims to work together with like-minded organisations and individuals to achieve a genuinely free and pluralistic media in Southern Africa.

MISA has its headquarters in Windhoek, Namibia and has a full time secretariat in 11 countries to service their respective membership. MISA-Zimbabwe is one such Chapter. The Zimbabwe Chapter of MISA was formed by a Trust on 27 August 1995 and established a fully-fledged secretariat made up of three people by August 1997.
