Combating Misinformation and Disinformation for COVID-19 and Future Public Health Threats
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that accurate and timely health-related information is crucial to mounting an effective response to a public health crisis. Contradictory messaging, misinformation, and undermining of public health experts have reduced the trust in public health responders, increased belief in false medical cures, and politicized public health measures aimed at curbing transmission of the disease. As can be seen in setbacks during the COVID-19 response, health-related misinformation and disinformation can lead to more infections, deaths, disruption, and disorganization of the effort. New research has examined the root causes of this phenomenon as well as pathways to remedy the problem. This session will evaluate the role misinformation has played in health emergencies and offer solutions to increase trust in future public health messaging.
