Abstract: Stop the Australian anti-­‐Vaccination Network (SAVN) is a Facebook group that was established in 2009 with the express purpose of challenging misinformation perpetuated by the professional anti-­‐vaccination organisation the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), now known as the Australian Vaccination-­‐Skeptics Network (AVSN). We present evidence that SAVN’s activities have been responsible for a reduction in the reach, influence, and financial power of the AVSN.
