Congratulations Professor Peter McIntyre – appointment to the WHO SAGE on Immunization

Congratulations to Professor Peter McIntyre on his appointment as a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization. Professor McIntyre was the Director of NCIRS from 2005 to 2017 and continues to be a Senior Professorial Fellow with NCIRS after moving to New Zealand in 2018.

The SAGE was established by the Director-General of the World Health Organization in 1999 to provide guidance on the work of WHO. SAGE is the principal advisory group to WHO for vaccines and immunisation. It is charged with advising WHO on overall global policies and strategies, ranging from vaccines and technology, research and development, to delivery of immunisation and its linkages with other health interventions. SAGE is concerned not just with childhood vaccines and immunisation, but all vaccine-preventable diseases.
