Important epidemiologic and policy changes that are reshaping national and local health landscapes necessitate a renewed focus on disease prevention and health promotion, and on strategic decision-making to prioritize programs for maximum impact and efficiency.
The Prevention Policy Modeling Lab models the health impact, costs and cost-effectiveness of infectious disease treatment and prevention programs in the United States. We work closely with collaborators in the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to inform U.S. health policy and guide public health decision-making at national, state and local levels. The models we build incorporate evidence-based prevention strategies, emphasize cross-cutting initiatives and produce results that can be operationalized within healthcare and other sectors.
The Prevention Policy Modeling Lab also builds web applications to provide user-friendly tools for our models. These tools visualize model outcomes and projections. This website is designed to host and support these tools. For further information on The Prevention Policy Modeling Lab, please see our main website.
