Health x fact-checking

The start of this page goes back to my preparations to talk at  the workshop I presented together with Masato Kajimoto and Jelena Kalinic at the GlobalFact11 in Sarajevo in June 2024 – How to build a business case for health fact-checking.

When we prepared for the workshop, we surveyed the participants of the conference and received a lot of great questions and feedback. We were not able to address them all during the workshop, so I put some of my thoughts down here, in hopes this can be a resource for fact-checking organizations that are seeking to understand the health sector and build sustained collaborations with public health.

I hope this is a start of conversations on how academia, fact-checkers and public health can improve the collaborations and make gains in promoting credible, accurate health information.

This article was written by public health professionals for fact-checkers

I developed these notes with Elisabeth Wilhelm for fact-checkers who are interested in or working on health topics. Understanding public health and how health systems work can help fact-checkers build better partnerships and strategies to address health misinformation and other health information challenges. 

Conversely, people who work in public health may not be familiar with how fact-checking organizations work and are networked, how they’re funded or the value they can provide in promoting credible, accurate health information to audiences.

What do fact-checkers need to know about public health and health information?
