The Scientific Advisory Group on Pandemic Influenza was reviewed in 2007 and has been replaced by the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Committee (SPI). The induction meeting on 4 March 2008 for SPI was informal to provide members with background information related to the pandemic influenza preparedness programme. No notes of the meeting were taken.
The agenda for the SPI induction, and its first meeting on 4 March 2008, have been placed in the Library. The agreed minutes of the SPI meeting will also be placed in the Library once they are available.
As a working group, the scientific sub-group on modelling does not take minutes as such, but instead updates their modelling summary based on the discussions held within the group and the conclusions reached. The latest available summary has been placed in the Library.
