The Australian Regional Immunisation Alliance (ARIA) brings together Australian immunisation and vaccine preventable diseases (VPD) experts from at least 12 organisations with decades of collective experience in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
ARIA works with governments, global immunisation partners, non-government organisations and other partners to strengthen immunisation and reduce the impact of VPDs in the region.
Applications for membership are assessed by the ARIA Steering Committee, and individuals need to meet all of the following criteria to be considered a member:
1. experience in immunisation and/or VPDs; a commitment to improving immunisation programs in the region; and formally linked to institutions in Australia or in the Indo-Pacific region
2. signatory to the ARIA Membership Code
3. committed to supporting the ARIA Guidelines.
To apply for ARIA membership, please complete the following form and return it to the ARIA Secretariat (SCHN-NCIRSGlobal@health.nsw.gov.au).
The ARIA Steering Committee meets monthly to discuss new membership; you will receive a response after Steering Committee review.
