WHO competency framework for infodemic management

  • Year: 2022

I directed the consultation and development of the first version of the WHO competency framework for infodemic management. The development of the framework was reported also in a peer-reviewed article.

The WHO competency framework for infodemic management can be used as a reference tool when planning infodemic management capacities, training, or teams, and can be adapted to be applied to the local context and needs.

It was used in design of the WHO infodemic management training and capacity building programme, combining global and local, comprehensive and targeted, in-person/online/hybrid training modalities.
