Request for nominations- WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on immunization

WHO is soliciting proposals for nominations of experts to serve on its Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on immunization.

SAGE is the principal advisory group to WHO for vaccines and immunization. SAGE reports to the Director-General of WHO and advises on global policies and strategies, ranging from vaccine R&D and vaccination recommendations to delivery of immunization, its linkages with other health interventions and integration into health systems. Its remit is not restricted to childhood immunization but extends to all vaccine-preventable diseases for all age groups. Please see this link for further information:

Members must be acknowledged experts with an outstanding record of achievements in their own field and an understanding of the immunization issues covered by the group. Members serve in individual capacity and do not represent institutions. Nominations, including self-nominations, are solicited globally, and women are particularly encouraged to postulate. Nominations will be reviewed by a dedicated selection panel, which will propose nominees to the WHO Director-General for appointment.

Instructions for nominations are available at the following link:

Candidates should submit their applications no later than 31 May 2018.
