PanaPress or Pana or PanAfrican News Agency is an African news agency. It has its headquarters in Dakar, Senegal. It was founded on 20 July 1979 in Addis Ababa by the Organisation of African Unity and was relaunched by UNESCO in 1993.[1] It provides news in English, French, Portuguese, and Arabic. PanaPress works in collaboration with UNESCO.

It contains Pan-African News Agency (PANA), also referred to as Agence d'information panafricaine (AIPA) and Agence panafricaine d'information (API) in French.


It was founded on 20 July 1979 in Addis Ababa, with the adoption of a convention by African Ministers of Information. PANA took over the activities of the Union des agences d'informations Africaines, which had been set up in April 1963 in Tunis.

PANA was officially inaugurated and commenced news agency activities on 25 May 1983. PANA is a specialised agency of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) and has its headquarters in Dakar, Senegal, with regional offices in Khartoum, Sudan; Lusaka, Zambia; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Lagos, Nigeria; and Tripoli, Libya.
