CURRENT PROJECT: “Science Communication Campaign for Immunizing the Public Against the Misinformation of the COVID-19 Vaccination”

Indonesia has started mass COVID-19 vaccination with some challenges in educating the
layperson on this vaccine’s safety and usefulness. This project aims to increase the layperson’s knowledge and awareness of the Coronavirus vaccination by empowering public health students as a science communicator. Public health students will be assisted in translating any existing robust scientific papers related to the Coronavirus vaccination into accessible language for laypersons, as the campaign content. Multiple popular social media channels with structured and repetitive content exposures will be conducted.

This project supported by This Is Public Health, and with the support of Dr. Richard and Mrs. Linda Riegelman as The Global Network for Academic Public Health (Global Network) program.

Together with our partners, we amplify the value of Indonesian public health through strengthening health policy.
