A case for investing in infodemic management

  • Year: 2023

I gave a talk to the Philippine national and subnational health promotion officers on why investing in infodemic management contributes to the prevention strategies in health.

I talk about:

  • turning focus on questions, concerns and information voids as precursors to misinformation, and this allows us to pe proactive in resilience building
  • how infodemic management can provide rapid insights on how to build trust
  • consequences of skewed investments and concurrent costs of the infodemic are affecting all countries, but especially low and middle income ones
  • how infodemic insights can detect potentially harmful narratives  and suggest solutions to mitigate them
  • infodemic interventions across levels of society and pressure points
  • the need for health authorities to build new partnerships to enable effective infodemic management
  • considerations for different operating environments
