Guidance for addressing a global infodemic and fostering demand for immunization
The Vaccine Misinformation Management Guide was developed to facilitate the development of strategic and well-coordinated national action plans to rapidly counter vaccine misinformation and build demand for vaccination that are informed by social listening. This guide should help practitioners to:
- Develop an evidence grounded understanding of misinformation in the context of vaccination, how it spreads and gets traction and what can be done to mitigate its impact
- Implement evidence-based approaches to address misinformation
- Develop a comprehensive and tailored national strategy for misinformation management
The guide should support practitioners working in immunization programs, including immunization managers, C4D communication for development specialists, behavior and social change specialists, external and digital communications and health teams.
This resource was created by the UNICEF Programme Division, Health Section, Immunization Unit C4D team, in collaboration with The Public Good Projects, First Draft and Yale Institute of Global Health.
