2nd WHO training in infodemic management
1 June - 30 June
In order to successfully address and mitigate the current infodemic and promote more effective future response, the World Health Organization (WHO) is organizing the 2nd Infodemic Management Training. From physics to law to behavioral science to epidemiology to user experience and design — it is clear that an infodemic manager would need a wider array of skills and expertise to successfully address infodemics that go beyond traditional boundaries of epidemiology, risk communication and community engagement and digital media.
The training will cover a spectrum of infodemic management skills and topics focused on skills needed to apply infodemic management interventions and practice to promote resilience of individuals and communities to the infodemic, including misinformation, and to promote self efficacy of individuals for self-protective health behaviors.
UN Global Pulse is excited to participate and share its experience in using data science and analytics to inform infodemic response with social listening tools which leverage public radio data.
The training is taking place during the month of June 2021. This is a closed training programme.
