Mathematical Modelling in Public Health: Tuberculosis

Mathematical Modelling in Public Health: Tuberculosis

The National Collaborating Centres for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) and the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH) have collaborated to create this video focusing on the modelling of tuberculosis.

In public health, mathematical modelling helps us answer difficult, real-world questions and understand complex relationships between biological, demographic, and environmental factors.

Modelling helps answer infectious disease-related questions like “What are the potential effects of three different interventions on a specific disease?” Modellers interpret the model outcomes and draw conclusions to make accurate, evidence-driven and transparent decisions for public health.

This video is part of NCCID’s series on Mathematical Modelling.
