YSEALI Alumna Partners Up to Reduce Coronavirus Misinformation in Thailand


Tackling misinformation surrounding the coronavirus isn’t easy, but alumna Piyashat Sinpimonboon (2017 YSEALI Professional Fellows Program) of Thailand has created a solution. In collaboration with members of the Makhampom Theatre group - and in partnership with Chiang Dao hospitals, Chiang Dao Public Health Offices, specialists, and local translators- inpimonboon has produced a series of printed and video media to help raise awareness and understanding of COVID-19. 

Her campaign uses local languages and approaches in a way that is digestible to the local ethnic communities. As a result of her work, local Chiang Dao residents are able to access and understand current, accurate, and reliable guidance on how to prevent COVID-19 in their communities, leading to improved community resiliency and decreased misinformation. 

Way to go, Piyashat!
