In its quest to help local journalists increase public trust in COVID-19 vaccinations currently being rolled out in the country, a local organisation says it has scored some success after embarking on training about 130 journalists on
best ways to cover the pandemic and spread the correct information. This was after the National Science and
Technology Council (NSTC) through its cooperating partners last year gave a grant of US$19,782 to Dziwa Science and Technology Trust (DSaT) through the Linking Science Society to Better Lives (LinkSS) project to promote
science communication in Zambia. The grant was accessed through the SGCI.
