EMPHNET is announcing the launch of the next webinar in its WEBi Series titled “Increasing Vaccine Demand and Uptake During the COVID-19 Vaccine Infodemic” The webinar will be held on Tuesday March 30, 2021 from 17:00 to 18:30, Jordan Local Time (UTC+3).

The rapid spread of unverified information in the media triggers harm by building confusion and drowning out accurate health information. It can also cause a change in behavior, amplification of panic and the use of unproven and harmful treatments. Finally, it can lead to negative attitudes to vaccination, and consequently increase the level of vaccine hesitancy among vulnerable populations. This webinar, led by a panel of experts, tackles the infodemic witnessed during the COVID-19 pandemic and the application of effective and actionable approaches that communities, health institutions and authorities can take to promote the flow of accurate health information and that can mitigate the harm that rumors and misinformation can cause.

The webinar session will focus on:

  • Exchanging knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned from global and regional infodemic trends and approaches.
  • Sharing a real country experience in tackling the COVID-19 infodemic.
  • Proposing actionable approaches and strategies to address the COVID-19 infodemic and misinformation.
  • Building resilience against misinformation in health systems and the public using available different resources.  

 
Participating experts include: 

  • Dr. Saad Omer, Director of the Yale Institute for Global Health, and Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Yale University, Schools of Medicine and Public Health.
  • Dr. Niaz Muhammad, Director General Health Services, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.
  • Mr. AbdelHalim AbdAllah, Crisis Communications Officer for the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Africa.

 
The session will be facilitated by Prof. Hyam Nicola Bashour, Professor of Epidemiology and Community Health at Al Sham Private University and Public Health Expert and Mr. Atsuyoshi Ishizumi, Research Fellow at US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
