SUPPORTING PARTICIPATORY EVIDENCE GENERATION TO CONTROL TRANSMISSIBLE DISEASES IN OUR REGION USING MODELLING (SPECTRUM)
Grant number: 1170960 | Funding period: 2019 - 2024
Infectious diseases continue to impose a health and economic burden on Australia and our region. Limited health system capacity to manage everyday infections increases the risk of catastrophic outbreaks of known and newly emerging diseases. Our Centre will work in partnership with regional policy makers and key stakeholders to identify key priorities, and acceptable evidence based solutions, for infectious disease control.
