Health misinformation poses a serious challenge to public health. It can cause confusion, sow mistrust, harm people’s health, and undermine public health efforts as evidenced during the COVID-19 pandemic that health misinformation led people to decline vaccines, reject public health measures, and use unproven treatments as seen during the Ebola disease outbreak in 2014.

Through our health misinformation project, we debunk misinformation around general health issues across various health topics. See a compilation of videos and infographics below of misinformation we have debunked here:

Winning the fight against misinformation is everyone’s business. Support from the public is critical to increase the quality of health information in Nigeria.
