FACTS CHECK

AfriSMC was established by ScienceAfrica and Partners in September 2020 in Nairobi, Kenya, through a small grant from Cornell Alliance for Science principally to work with journalists and scientists on the continent to improve the credibility of media reporting of emerging scientific issues, such as the Coronavirus pandemic.

The first Science Media Centre (SMC) was established in the UK in 2002 after a frenzied and inaccurate media reporting on Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations and autism, GM crops and growing public mistrust of science.
