    Commissioned Reports and Summaries of Evidence

    The evidence compendium of the AHMPPI contains a series of commissioned reports including literature reviews, modelling and an analysis of the assumptions underlying pandemic planning for the AHMPPI. The findings of these reports have been used to develop the approach taken in the AHMPPI, but as they may also be useful in their own right to provide greater detail of the evidence and analyses accumulated they are provided in the compendium in full. Full copies of these reports can be requested by emailing Pandemic Planning.

    A series of summaries have also been developed to outline the key evidence found in the commissioned reports relating to the effectiveness of public health measures. These evidence summaries have been developed for decision makers. Summaries of the commissioned reports can be accessed below.
