The World Health Organisation has launched new tools to help organisations across Europe increase capacity building across risk communication, community engagement, and infodemic management (RCCE-IM) topics. RCCE-IM is one of the International Health Regulations core capacities that countries are required to build and strengthen. Products and activities provided by WHO include:

  • Capability Mapping Tool to help users self-assess their professional skills against desired levels. The tool suggests resources for RCCE-IM skills development, and users can compare their skills within teams, departments, and the whole organisation.
  • Plan Creator Tool offers a comprehensive online platform for RCCE-IM practitioners to develop multi-hazard and specific-hazard plans, based on best practice tips gleaned from the Covid-19 responses.
  • The RCCE-IM School is a tailored workshop that combines all the best practices from RCCE-IM across ten modules, including case studies, deep dives, exercises, and interactive discussions with experienced trainers. This highly rated course culminates in a simulation exercise.
