MSHR weekly seminar 


Sarah Moberly and Ross Andrews present ‘A systematic review of the effectiveness of Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccines in adults’ on Monday 19 February from 12pm to 1pm.

Diseases caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae continue to cause substantial morbidity and mortality in adults throughout the world.

Whilst pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines have the potential to prevent disease and death, the degree of protection afforded against various clinical endpoints and within different populations remains controversial.

Ross and Sarah’s presentation will address the updated results from the Cochrane Review of pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines in adults.

Sarah Moberly is a PhD student and Dr Ross Andrews an epidemiologist with the Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases Division at the Menzies School of Health Research.

This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
