WHO infodemic management framework

  • Year: 2020

I codesigned and co-directed the first WHO online consultation on infodemic management. In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, this two-day consultation brought together over 1300+ participants and 40 speakers from academia, civil society and public health in a guided mass online ideation and consultation.

The participants coproduced 50 actions to be taken across society to counter and manage the COVID-19 infodemic, resulting in a call for action – WHO whole-of-society infodemic management framework.

Review the WHO IM consultation programme and video recordings from the consultation.
