NCIRS provides input into the development of national immunisation policy by assisting the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) in development of national policy recommendations through:
- production of The Australian Immunisation Handbook
- technical support for a range of ATAGI Working Parties
NCIRS also provides technical support to the Australian Government Department of Health Immunisation Policy Section.
Support for translating policy into effective immunisation programs is provided by membership and input into the activities of the National Immunisation Committee (NIC).
