HIV Modelling Consortium Symposium at ICASA 2015

The HIV Modelling Consortium invite you to attend a Symposium entitled "A Dialogue Between Program Planners and Model Makers' to be organised in collaboration with the Society for AIDS in Africa and held at the ICASA Meeting in Harare, Zimbabwe on Monday 30 November 18:30 - 20:30.
Monday 30 November 2015 18:30 - 20:30 | Harare, Zimbabwe

Rationale for meeting:

Across global health, model analyses are increasingly being applied to aid decision making in recognition of the need to optimally allocate resources and to inform sustainable long-term planning. As the applications of models diversify and expand, their impact on global health also grows; and therefore coordination and communication between the individuals developing the models and the consumers of these models (country planners, programmers and regional leads) is essential to improve understanding and ultimately advance the impact and effectiveness of these tools.

This Symposium, organized by The HIV Modelling Consortium, aims to hear directly from programme managers and their experience with the following: (1) UNAIDS Investment Case (2) WHO ART Guidelines (3) Geographical Allocation.

Aim of the meeting:

To foster dialogue between mathematical modellers and country teams, programmers, regional leaders and managers.
