Regulatory authorities

State-controlled audiovisual media, online media and social networks are at present completely outside the control of both the HCC in its regulatory functions and the Observatoire des Médias Centrafricains (Observatory of Centrafrican Media - OMCA). In an attempt to remedy this deficiency, some international organisations such as Internews and the French Institute Panos Europe offer training workshops on current media issues to journalists, through their projects to support Central African media and inform vulnerable populations.
