WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research/Global Malaria Programme Joint Technical Expert Group


Peter Smith chairs the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research/Global Malaria programme Joint Technical Expert Group (JTEG) on Malaria Vaccines Entering Pivotal Phase 3 Trials & Beyond which was established in April 2009. JTEG provides advice to WHO on activities related to the development of malaria vaccines at or nearing the pivotal phase 3 trial stage.

Stefan Flasche and Mark Jit act as consultants to WHO in organising a comparison of existing mathematical models of malaria vaccination. The results of the comparison will be presented to JTEG after the modelling groups have incorporated final results from phase III trials of the furthest advanced vaccine candidate (RTS,S AS01).
