RAPID: Data-Based Spatiotemporal Models of Ebola Epidemics and Control

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Ebola epidemic in West Africa continues to cause significant morbidity and mortality. The World Health Organization declared the Ebola epidemic in West Africa a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 8 August 2014. As the epidemic continues to spread at an alarming rate in some areas of West Africa, there is an urgent need to develop, test, and calibrate novel mathematical models of Ebola transmission and control with the goal of generating real-time, science-based forecasts of the epidemic in West Africa in order to quantify the times, locations, type and intensity of interventions that would be required to achieve control.
