The Misinformation Dilemma: How Did We Get Here & What Can We Do?

The spread of conspiracy theories and harmful misinformation – about vaccines, unproven treatments, alternative therapies, and healthy lifestyles – is a defining characteristic of our time. It has led to deaths, financial loss, increased stigma, health policy challenges, and added to the chaotic information environment. We must counter this “infodemic” with evidence-based communication, education, and policy strategies.
