WHO publishes the first ever evidence-based guideline on Emergency Risk Communication to support countries in building capacity for communicating risk during health emergencies. The recommendations in the guideline provide overarching, evidence-based guidance on how risk communication should be practised in an emergency. The recommendations also are a contribution to national risk communication capacity building under the International Health Regulations and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Framework.
