Hands-on computer exercise

For this module, work through two DSAIDE apps, namely Control of Different Populations and Complex Control Scenarios. Fill and submit the corresponding quiz sheets.

Topic discussion

Read the article “Towards the endgame and beyond: complexities and challenges for the elimination of infectious diseases” by Klepac et al. (2013) which you can get here.

Choose some ID - either one listed in box 1 of the paper or a different one - and discuss the current plans for elimination/eradication. What features of the ID will likely be helpful or unhelpful with regard to eradication/elimination? Reference the different areas the paper discusses. What is your overall assessment of feasibility?
