4-Part CAPS/PRC Town Hall Series -- Laying Foundations of Trust: Moving Towards Health Equity

This 4-part CAPS/DPS Town Hall series will explore core social and behavioral aspects of trust and engagement with public health measures in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, with an eye towards lessons from HIV work, in order to stimulate programmatic and research agendas that promote health equity.

Session 3: Risk and Decision-making in a Climate of Uncertainty

This session will focus on how people understand risk (related to both acquisition and transmission) and make decisions about public and personal health-related behaviors (HIV- and COVID-related), particularly in the context of uncertainty and changing information and misinformation. It also will examine what tools exist to help people in this regard.
