Call for nominations for experts to serve on a SAGE Working Group on Oral Cholera Vaccines

WHO is calling for nominations for membership in a SAGE Working Group on oral cholera vaccines. Proposals for nominations should be sent by email to with a Curriculum Vitae, indication of expertise relevant to the working group and a completed Declaration of Interests form. Only complete nominations (self or from third party) received by Friday, 30 October 2015, will be considered.

The Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization 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 immunization. It is charged with advising WHO on overall global policies and strategies, ranging from vaccines and technology, research and development, to delivery of immunization and its linkages with other health interventions. SAGE is concerned not just with childhood vaccines and immunization, but all vaccine-preventable diseases.
