Dr Christine Selvey was appointed to the Board in September 2012 as the Director with immunisation expertise. Dr Selvey has had responsibility for the implementation of state immunisation programs in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Victoria. She was a member of the National Immunisation Committee (NIC) from 1999-2007 and has been both the NIC and the Communicable Diseases Network Australia (CDNA) representative on the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI). Dr Selvey has a particular interest in HPV vaccine and was a member of two ATAGI working groups that provided recommendations on the use of HPV vaccines in Australia. With her experience in managing immunisation programs in the two Australian jurisdictions with immunisation registers, and her experience with the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register, Dr Selvey brings a good understanding of the operation of immunisation registers to the Board.
