Join us as we talk with WHO Information Network for Epidemics (EPI-WIN) Initiative Lead, Melinda Frost on what community, business, faith and health leaders can do to address the misinformation about COVID-19. EPI-WIN seeks to give everyone access to timely, accurate, and easy-to-understand advice and information from trusted sources on public health events and outbreaks: currently the COVID-19 public health emergency.

In addition, we will hear from UNICEF about the newly released Minimum Standards and Indicators for Community Engagement. Community engagement is a critical component of global health and development practice and humanitarian assistance. These standards support direct implementation by establishing the principles and parameters for communities to plan, take action and be heard in all matters affecting them. Without effective community engagement, we will lose the war on COVID-19.

Speakers:

Melinda Frost MA, MPH Lead | Strategy & Content | WHO Information Network for Epidemics - EPI-WIN | WHO Health Emergencies Programme | World Health Organization

Raina Elessawi, MA Communications for Development Specialist - Planning and Monitoring | UNICEF
