We all have the power and responsibility to confront health misinformation.
Read the Surgeon General’s Advisory to call our country’s attention to health misinformation – an urgent threat to our health that requires an all-of-society response. It includes recommendations for individuals, educators, researchers, health professionals, and more. surgeongeneral.gov/healthmisinformation.

Today I issued a Surgeon General’s Advisory to call our country’s attention to health misinformation – an urgent threat to our health that requires an all-of-society response.

Health misinformation is information that is false, inaccurate, or misleading according to the best available science at the time. During this pandemic, it's divided our friends, families, and communities. It’s led to threats against our health workers. And it’s cost us lives.

We all have the power and responsibility to confront health misinformation. That’s why we included recommendations for individuals, educators, researchers, health professionals, tech companies, and more. Learn how you can act at surgeongeneral.gov/healthmisinformation.
