The World Health Organisation (WHO) has launched its first-ever Technical Advisory Group on risk communication, community engagement and infodemic management.


Members of the technical advisory group come from 18 different countries across the WHO European Region. The Chair of the Technical Advisory Group, Laura Woodward, Head of Risk Communication and Emergencies at the UK Health Security Agency said, “Now, more than ever, WHO Member States realize the importance of RCCE-IM, which is a public health intervention in itself with a significant impact on the success of preventing and controlling health emergencies. This Technical Advisory Group will help sift through the evidence, share practical experience from across countries and areas on what works, and will provide recommendations for the most effective approaches and vital investments health authorities need to make.”
