An agency or ministry of propaganda is the part of a government charged with generating and distributing propaganda.

Though governments routinely engage in propaganda, ministries with the word "propaganda" in their name have become progressively more rare since the end of World War II, as a result of which the term took on its present negative connotation. Instead of using the word "propaganda", governments today often use the terms "public relations", "psychological operations", "education", or simply "information".
