Expert Reference Committee Process

Each Expert Reference Committee (ERC) in principle is a joint working party of the Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Standing Committee (BBVSS) of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC). The ERC comprises of members from BBVSS of the AHPPC jurisdictional representation, clinical specialists, GPs and representatives from peak National community sector organisations.  

A larger communication network provides expertise in a range of areas to inform, provide feedback, direction and advice on specific areas within each policy.
