According to a news report, the information centres form part of several mechanisms Facebook is putting in place to support the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Facebook built the information centres on its platform in collaboration with national health partners across over 17 countries in Sub-saharan Africa to ensure that people can get access to accurate, reliable, and timely information from trusted health sources.
