AllAfrica.com is a website that aggregates news produced primarily on the African continent about all areas of African life, politics, issues and culture. It is available in both English and French and produced by AllAfrica Global Media, which has offices in Cape Town, Dakar, Lagos, Monrovia, Nairobi, and Washington, D.C.. AllAfrica is the successor to the African News Service.

The current news and the archived news stories that the site presents are organizable by pull-down menus; the 1000 or so stories that are presented daily[1] can be displayed by categories and subcategories such as country, region, and by dozens of standard news topics like business news, sports news, culture, climate, military, NGOs, World Cup, etc.

In 2008, AllAfrica.com rolled out a comment board system for hosted stories.

The President of AllAfrica Global Media, M. Amadou Mahtar BA, is member of the International Advisory Board of the African Press Organization.
