Infectious Disease Dynamics

The talk first briefly examine recent progress in mathematical epidemiology over the past decade with mention of: (1) inference – parameter estimation; (2) complex spatially structured stochastic models of transmission and control; (3) Visual display of results; (4) range of infectious disease addressed – both in Medicine and Veterinary sciences; and (5) influence in policy formulation – mathematical models now regarded by most as an essential tool in policy formulation.

The main part of the talk will focus on new research on the study of the transmission and control of the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), with emphasis on how models can help in the design of mass chemotherapy programmes.
