SIRC also seeks to promote more responsible health reporting and health policies. The development of the Guidelines on Science and Health Communication, in association with the Royal Institution, was funded directly by SIRC, and relied on the generosity of the scientific and medical organisations and individual doctors, scientists and journalists who gave their time and expertise to the project. These guidelines have been further developed as part of an EU-funded initiative. For details see the MESSENGER project pages.
