Protecting
public health
relies on people
behaving in a
certain way
Some examples:
Individual
health
decisions have
population
level impacts
Some examples:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Left unaddressed, these can contribute to erosion of trust health guidance, health interventions, health workers and health
systems, reduce risk perception, discourage healthy behaviors and contribute to vaccine hesitancy. This can be prevented.
Issuing confusing guidance that is not
appropriate for specific populations, such as
people who are immunocompromised or
pregnant.

Public health
principles of
risk
assessment
and protecting
the most
vulnerable
Some examples:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Health topic areas that are represented in health misinformation research
when public health concerns expressed by individuals are hijacked by values-based meta
narratives that are intentionally spread to achieve an agenda and do harm to systems.
Questions, concerns,information voids Misinformaton Disinformation
Profit Profit and
influence/power over a
health agenda
Sowing wider distrust
for political influence,
health is hijacked

Be careful in partnerships built in the
health space because health
authorities are expected to be
apolitical to be able to achieve their
mission.
Precision response to disinformation
needs to be coupled with mitigation
of secondary effects that manifest
overtime.
We need to involve health professionals
when developing regulations and
measures on disinformation. Inevitably,
there will be health topics involved and
the decisions on this are made without
health professionals, patient advocates
(in addition to consumer advocates and
the public).
Greater coherence in follow-up
needed in health sector’s response
to disinformation’s secondary
effects on health, trust and
sservices.
Carefulparntershipand
clearroles acrosssectors

Disinformation
mitigation vs longerterm
health effects
Greater understanding of
parntership in needed
across sectors
Better and more
coherentfollow up are
needed
Thankyouvery
much!
