NACI: Process for Incorporating Economic Evidence into Federal Vaccine Recommendations Stakeholder Consultation
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) provides the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) with ongoing and timely medical, scientific, and public health advice relating to immunization.
In addition to safety, efficacy, effectiveness, immunogenicity, and burden of illness, PHAC has expanded the mandate of NACI to include the systematic consideration of programmatic factors in developing evidence-based recommendations to facilitate timely decision-making for publicly funded vaccine programs at provincial and territorial levels. The additional factors to be systematically considered by NACI include: economics, ethics, equity, feasibility, and acceptability.
The NACI Economic Process
outlines the process of determining when and how NACI incorporates economic evidence into its recommendations.
NACI is now seeking input on the draft Economic Process from stakeholders, including but not limited to:
Provinces and territories
The Canadian Immunization Committee
Vaccine Safety Working Group
The Council of the Chief Medical Officers of Health
National Immunization Technical Advisory Groups (NITAGs)
Provincial Immunization Technical Advisory Group (PITAGs)
Health Technology Assessment Agencies
