Battling Misinformation and Disinformation: SRHR in the Digital Age

26 January, 2024


On 25 January 2024, SRHM and the USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health hosted a webinar entitled “Battling Misinformation and Disinformation: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Digital Age,”. Technology, social media, and digital health interventions have the potential to play positive and transformative roles in addressing sexual and reproductive health and rights. Increasingly, however, digital spaces are rife with misinformation and disinformation, intersecting closely with barriers in access to/control over technology, digital literacy, and online safety. This one-hour virtual event brought together key actors who discussed how they address misinformation and disinformation impacting sexual and reproductive health and rights, including strategies to ensure that the transformative potential of technology can support agency, bodily autonomy and decision-making for all individuals.
