Patrick Fafard, a Core Member of the ISSP, has been awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to conduct research on Covid-19. Professor Fafard will head up an international team of researchers that will investigate how senior government officials communicate public health advice. The research will also assess the extent to which the public understands and trusts government messaging. This research will contribute to public health response strategies for mitigating the spread of infectious disease in Canada, as well as in four other countries with similar health systems.
