Coronavirus (1367) Global community of practice grows to over 500 WHO trained infodemic managers

23 September, 2021

From WHO's Information Network for Epidemics (EPI-WIN). Are you one of the 500 infodemic managers on this community of practice? We would love to hear from you about your experience with the course (which is overwhelmingly positive - a 3rd course is announced below) and any ideas you may have about sharing of knowledge and experience between this exciting new CoP and HIFA.

'The World Health Organization (WHO) has expanded the global community of practice of infodemic managers to more than 500 trainees from 120 countries following the completion of the 2nd WHO Global Infodemic Management training. The map shows the geographical range of infodemic managers, located across all of the 6 WHO regions.'
