Stories about the Science of Vaccines
Health journalists in Zambia are gathered for a series of meetings and discussions hosted by AVAC and Internews in Lusaka to unpack the science of HIV vaccines and other prevention options. The country has an HIV prevalence of almost 13%, and is gearing up for clinical trials to test a new HIV candidate vaccine. “I’m so much clearer about what the numbers mean and what the science is all about”, says Lorraine Mwanza, who is leading a program of science media café’s at the Zambia Institute of Mass Communication, ZAMCOM, in Lusaka.
