ATAGI Working Party Memberships and Conflicts of Interest

ATAGI Working Parties

ATAGI establishes working parties and working groups (subgroups of a working party consisting mainly of ATAGI members) to examine specific vaccine preventable diseases in depth, including to review and interpret the evidence on the use of vaccines to address those diseases.

Working parties / groups are tasked with preparing evidence-based population-focussed advice and recommendations for ATAGI’s consideration in formulating advice to Department of Health and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC). Advice from the working parties / groups is also used by ATAGI in formulating or revising recommendations on vaccine use in the Australian Immunisation Handbook.

Each of the working parties/groups is a chaired by an ATAGI member. Members of the working parties consist of selected members of ATAGI as well as other experts in the area of focus who are not ATAGI members. Other experts with specialised knowledge or skills may also be invited to provide specific additional information to facilitate the work of each of these working parties as required. In some instances specific pieces of work may be tasked to a sub group of the working party.
