What trust issues are brought up?
Philosophers, Social Scientists
Trust is an integral aspect of human behavior. It allows us to navigate conditions of uncertainty, vulnerability and risk in our daily lives with a sense of confidence and security. This concept becomes especially relevant when it comes to the way we gather and process information.
Though we understand its importance, trust is not easily understood. When it comes to the topic of vaccines, levels of trust may be understandably rooted in fear and uncertainty, a distrust of institutions, or within the complicated nature of vaccine development. One plausible pathway to building trust in the area of vaccines is to share trusted forms of information:
- Credible sources of health information
- that are scientifically competent and
- come from communities that are connected to the people within a conversation
To address this, we are building a prototype database that contains high-quality question and answer resources developed by many community leaders that are in alignment with authoritative guidance on vaccines.
