I would be interested in joining this. [*see note below]
My recent work in Zambia showed the issues of 1) lack of trust and 2) different cultural norms challenging health information, when attempting to implement quality improvement programmes.
The resulting report is in progress.

[*Note from HIFA moderator (NPW): Thank you Marion. At present there is no concrete activity to respond specifically to this call. I forwarded the call for papers a few weeks ago https://www.hifa.org/dgroups-rss/call-papers-building-and-restoring-trus... and various HIFA members have made suggestions. Your recent work in Zambia sounds very interesting and relevant to the call. It is also highly relevant to HIFA's flagship activity for 2023: to consult with HIFA members and beyond to submit a report to WHO by the end of 2023: 'To identify best practices, opportunities and challenges from relevant health related stakeholders, towards pursuing universal access to reliable healthcare information'. As and when you are able, please do share your experience on these issues.]
