“The influence of misinformation on outbreak response: Examining Ebola and COVID-19 research from Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda”
ABSTRACT: What was the role of trust and misinformation in shaping individual preventive behaviors during an outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)? Additionally, how did trust and misinformation impact the response to COVID-19 in the DRC and Uganda? By examining survey data collected in both countries, Dr. Phuong Pham will explore the research findings and practical implications of addressing misinformation in outbreak control.
