Communicating COVID-19 Media, Trust, and Public Engagement

  • Examines global communication experiences in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Explores media’s role in health, politics, technology, society, and culture during COVID-19
  • Offers interdisciplinary insights from media studies, journalism, public health, and strategic communication

Breakthrough ACTION contributed three chapters that analyze stigma’s impact on COVID-19 communication, a multi-channel approach to debunk rumors, and the role of celebrities and religious figures in dispelling COVID-19 myths. While these chapters are based on Breakthrough ACTION’s COVID-19 work, the findings can have implications for risk communication and community engagement efforts more generally.
