Mathematical Modelling in Public Health: Tuberculosis

Publication Summary

This video is part of NCCID’s series on Mathematical Modelling. The National Collaborating Centres for Infectious Diseases and Indigenous Health have created 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.
