The workshop explores the uses of mathematical models in describing past and future disease transmission and how these models can be applied in evaluating the effectiveness of disease control interventions and comparing policy options to reduce disease burden.

The participants are individuals with previous experience in modelling infectious diseases with backgrounds in health, statistics, applied mathematics, biology or public

The course will cover the topics below:
