NTD Modeling Consortium: Insights on data needs

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

As Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) programs move towards the 2020 goals, there is a need to strengthen data collection and evaluation for decision making. Mathematical modeling has an important role in evaluating current monitoring and evaluation data and discussing alternatives, as well as in evaluating whether additional data is needed to understand key epidemiological uncertainties. This Collection will be regularly updated with new content, so check back soon for more featured research!
