INFECTIOUS DISEASES: HOW CAN MATHEMATICAL MODELLING CONTRIBUTE?
Dr Sheetal Silal
With many countries around the world working to control and eliminate infectious diseases, mathematical modellers have the potential to make unique contributions to informing policy and guiding research. From strategic planning to resource allocation, drug resistance to the assessment of new tools, this talk will focus on ways that mathematical modelling can contribute to reducing the burden of disease with examples of current projects in Africa and the Asia-Pacific.
