About this talk

These are monthly, low-cost events that bring journalists, advocates, and scientists together in an informal setting, usually under a tree or in social halls. In case we are unable to find an informal venue as per our preference, we often reluctantly go to a modest hotel. The cafes take a maximum of two hours, where an expert/scientist is invited to talk about a given issue that journalists need to know. Topics vary from vaccines to treatments to environmental conservation to air pollution to an agricultural issue. It is your kind of event if you are looking for a breaking story. The program also runs in Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. It is a model that health journalists, as well as other science journalists, can adopt to provide a platform to continually discuss science. The presentation will be based on our experience in organizing nearly 30 science cafes since 2015.
