Information Sharing for a Healthier Society: More Than Just Big Data and Information-Based Platforms

Part of the Sustainable Development Goals Series book series (SDGS)

Abstract

Information sharing is a suitable practice that mediates relationships between expectations and trust, allowing for enhancing trust in the long run (Butler Jr Butler .Group Org Manage 24:217–238, 1999).

Keeping people uninformed is as effective as keeping them uneducated.
