“Health misinformation is a serious threat to public health. It can cause confusion, sow mistrust, harm people’s health, and undermine public health efforts.”

-  Dr. Vivek H. Murthy,
surgeon general of the United States
“Disinformation and misinformation are eroding public trust in science, becoming a threat to the planet, and costing lives. But it goes beyond a pandemic—climate change, routine vaccinations, gun violence, reproductive health.”
 
- Dr. Katelyn Jetelina, Your Local Epidemiologist

“Equitable access to trusted health information is critical to keeping people safe and informed.”

- Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director general
