Can the ‘misinformation pandemic’ be stopped? – SDG Media Zone, High-Level Week, 75th session of the UN General Assembly (22 September 2020)
22 Sep 2020 -  As public and private sector experts and institutions come together to fast-track the development and equitable distribution of tests and treatments through the ACT Accelerator, we continue to grapple with the political, economic and social challenges brought about by the pandemic, including the growth and spread of harmful misinformation.
Guests include WHO Special Envoy Dr. David Nabarro, the Founder of the Vaccine Confidence Project Dr. Heidi Larson; and Executive Director of First Draft News Dr. Claire Wardle.

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.
