Life-saving Vaccines and Deadly Misinformation – SDG Media Zone, High-Level Week, 75th session of the UN General Assembly (29 September 2020)
28 Sep 2020 -  Misinformation is a threat to public health - it can complicate and undermine outbreak response, erode public trusts in organizations leading the fight against diseases and lead to potentially life-threatening consequences. Guests: Director of Pandemic and Epidemic Disease at the World Health Organization Dr. Sylvie Briand and UN Under-Secretary-General, Global Communications Melissa Fleming.

Since 2016, the SDG Media Zone has been one of the main features of the UN General Assembly high-level week, bringing together UN Member States, content creators, influencers, activists and media partners to highlight actions and solutions in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. Organized by the UN Department of Global Communications, in collaboration with the PVBLIC Foundation, the SDG Media Zone takes the conversation on advancing the 2030 Agenda out of the policy sphere and into the public discourse through impactful in-depth interviews and panel discussions.
