 en Scientists should highlight their research in the mass media so that the communities appreciate scientific research
Kavinya, Thengo

Abstract

In the last two decades science has delivered dramatic results especially in health, medicine and lifestyle. Within the international scientific community there is an increasing awareness of the duty and responsibility of publicly funded scientists to make science more accessible to the general public. The media stimulates public debate and shapes public opinion but is the mass media in the country doing enough and if not why? I talked to Khanyiwe Shawa, Science communication officer at Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Program (MLW) on her opinion on science communication in the country and the way forward.
