Effectively Evaluate Intervention Selections for Controlling Infectious Diseases


Our encounters with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and Ebola virus disease (EVD) jog our memory of the ongoing need to be cautious against the emergence of new infectious ailments. Mathematical modeling is progressively utilized within the administration of infectious disease regulation as a method to appraise interventions relatively swiftly, economically, and securely. Modeling to Inform Infectious Disease Control presents readers how to utilize these models when developing strategies to alleviate infectious disease transmission.

The book provides a manner of modeling as well as modeling results that aid to guide the efficient regulation of infectious disease transmission and outbreak response. It discusses the prerequisites for averting epidemics and methods to gauge the impact of preventive public health interventions on the extent and dynamics of an epidemic. The book also demonstrates how data is utilized to advise model selection.

Accessible to readers with diverse backgrounds, this book explains how to gain insight into the regulation of infectious diseases through statistical modeling. With end-of-chapter exercises and glossaries of infectious disease terminology and notation, the text is suitable for a graduate-level public health course. Supplementary technical material is provided at the end of each chapter for readers with a stronger background in mathematics and an interest in the art of modeling. In addition, bibliographic notes direct readers to literature in which extensions and more general results may be found.
