GPHW2024: Maintaining Health Security: Strengthening Health Workforce Capacities for Infodemic Management


Mar 18, 2024

Theme: Fostering the Development of the Right Competencies within Tomorrow’s Health Workforce

Date and Time: 12th April 2024 | 14:00-15:00 (CEST, UTC +02:00)

Event Description: As the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic slowly fades from the public eye, we are confronted with a resurging public health issue: the decrease of routine immunization coverage, leading to outbreaks of preventable infectious diseases like measles and whooping cough. Unfortunately, the global community has not been able to maintain or increase confidence in health systems, and many people still lack high-quality health information to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.

In 2024, many countries are expected to hold elections while deadly conflicts persist worldwide, resulting in an even greater division within society. This polarization will inevitably affect health promotion activities, making infodemic management crucial to maintaining health security.

This online roundtable will bring together international speakers of different backgrounds and affiliations to discuss how we can use the existing health workforce capacities in infodemic management. What is higher education institutions’ role in combating misinformation and disinformation in the health sector?
