Introduction to Tuberculosis Modelling -Post Graduate Course at the 45th World Union World Conference on Lung Health, 2014
Following the success of the first Introduction to Tuberculosis Modelling Post Graduate course at the Union Conference 2013 in Paris, TB MAC is pleased to announce that the course is set to run once more at the next World Conference in Barcelona, 2014. To find out more see here and to register, visit the main conference registration page.
Aimed at individuals interested in understanding or looking to start modelling tuberculosis and its contribution of modelling to support policy decision for TB care and control programmes, the course will introduce participants to the basic structures, assumptions, principles, and concepts of tuberculosis modelling. We will cover key aspects of Mtb natural history that affect modelling as well as the impact and cost-effectiveness of TB care and control programmes. Participants will get hands-on experience of using a simple TB model and will learn how to critically appraise tuberculosis modelling papers. The day finishes by highlighting the role of modelling for policy and decision-making, and how TB MAC supports this process.
