TB and Mathematical Modelling

Figure shows the result from one of the early TB models, and the first to explicitly model TB disease following re-infection with Mtb.

Mission Statement

The TB Modelling and Analysis Consortium aims to improve global TB control by coordinating and promoting mathematical modelling and other quantitative research activities to provide scientific support for policy decisions and implementation. 

We seek to do this by:

1. Identifying high priority research questions concerning TB control that require input from mathematical modelling or other quantitative research.

2. Facilitating sharing of data, information and expertise to achieve consensus on current knowledge and knowledge gaps, methodological standards and current best practice for TB control decision making.

3. Funding small analytical/modelling research projects

4. Disseminating results and tools to key stakeholders including TB control programmes and donors.
