Technology Infrastructure in Public Health System: Mediating Role of Public Trust in Government Disaster Preparedness

Omyma Adam, Muhideen Sayibu, Isangha Stanley Oloji, Akintunde, Tosin Yinka


It is a natural tendency for the developing world to be unprepared for public health emergencies. Prioritizing public health systems and technological infrastructure is both costly and crucial. The goal of this study is to serve as a wake-up call to policymakers in low-income nations to make a significant change toward pandemic preparedness through innovative health investment. For the developing-country sample population, the study used a mixed-method approach. A total of 340 healthcare workers were recruited for the experiment via convenient sampling, and they were fully aware that no data would be compromised. The results reveal no major differences in pandemic threat readiness between technology infrastructure and health systems. However, although vaccination take-up attenuation dampens the study link between public trust and Covid-19 mitigation. To maintain public trust in government, it is vital to use innovative investment schemes to research global public health and upgrade health professionals and scientists. The WHO's global strategy and preparedness approach is quickly shifting toward R&D on digital infrastructure for any impending epidemics. It was also intended to increase public trust in government control of effective safety measures, immunization, and a technological deficiency that could be exploited to rescue lives if a crisis arose.
