WHO webinar on infodemic management

Learning from the past and planning for the future of infodemic management

8 November 2022, 13:00–14:00 Central European Time (virtual) 

Critical public health emergencies, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the monkeypox outbreak, have made infodemic management a high priority for decision-makers worldwide. WHO/Europe will be launching 2 publications in a webinar on 8 November 2022:

  • “Advancing infodemic management in risk communication and community engagement in the WHO European Region”, implementation guidance, based on the latest evidence and practical experience with infodemic management in public health emergencies; 
  • “What are the historical roots of the COVID-19 infodemic? Lessons from the past. Health Evidence Network (HEN) synthesis report 77”, which examines the historical roots of the COVID-19 infodemic to set out lessons learned from past disease outbreaks.

Both documents will serve as a resource for policy-makers working to design and implement preparedness, readiness and response interventions that can mitigate the risks of infodemics.
