    More about narrative:

    Narratives are the values-based themes of stories that we use to understand our world. A narrative communicates and reinforces a worldview and engages people in considering their own understanding of the world around them.  As we saw during COVID-19 response, public health’s ability to advance health equity is greatly limited by current dominant narratives. New, transformative narratives can shift public consciousness, which changes how we think the world operates and what we view as the problem and its solutions. Narratives change what is possible to achieve for health equity.
