ABSTRACT

Modernizing and Expanding Outbreak Science to Support Better Decision Making During Public Health Crises: Lessons for COVID-19 and Beyond   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The purpose of this report is to characterize the origin and implications of the disconnect between modelers and public health decision makers and to develop a plan for the expansion of outbreak science as a capability to support public health. To accomplish this, we (1) conducted a literature review of past uses of modeling to support public health decision making, and (2) interviewed key informants from the modeling community and policymakers to identify themes and challenges related to using infectious disease modeling to support public health decision making."
