HIV Denialism - an ongoing discussion

National Press Foundation by National Press Foundation 0 comments

HIV denial is one of the topics in focus on our other blog, The NPF Helpdesk.

To get a better grasp on how denialists are able to spread their messages, take a look at this paper on PLoS Medicine. It provides useful frameworks for understanding denialist arguments and how they work to undermine scientific consensus. And for a refresher on how this subjects relates to journalism, have another listen at our Journalist to Journalist discussion in Sydney.
