5th WHO infodemic management conference – metrics and measures of burden of infodemics

  • Year: 2021

I designed and co-led the 5th WHO infodemic management conference, which brought together over 80 academics and public health professionals to discuss metrics and measures in infodemic management.  Read the 5th IM conference booklet.

The conference participants co-developed an action plan and a concept model that integrated the information environment, individual, health system, and societal measures.
