Modelling socio-economic determinants and interventions for TB
The seventh TB MAC meeting on 'Modelling socio‐economic determinants and interventions for TB ‐ what do we know, where do we go?' was held at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan hotel.
Its aims were to set out a path towards including socio‐economic trends and interventions into mathematical models of TB. Experts from different fields were brought together, including social epidemiologists and epidemiological modellers, health economists, and representatives from policy bodies, including the UNDP, World Bank and WHO to share ongoing analyses and shape the direction of future modelling research in this area.
