Exploring science denialism in HIV/AIDS, Vaccines and Climate change
Why are scientists losing the public debate? Even when scientific consensus is achieved, denialists create doubt, thus impeding scientific progress and putting lives at risk.
The LSHTM Showcase “Science Denialism” demonstrates the strategies successfully used by vaccine, climate change and HIV-AIDS denialists to advance their cause.
