Infectious diseases pose a local and global challenge, with substantial human and economic costs.
Simulations and models are used to provide insights into infectious disease trends, quantify likely benefits of public health interventions, and support risk assessment for emerging infectious diseases. PRISM² will extend existing national modelling capacity and cross-sectoral partnerships to inform infectious disease preparedness, control and response in Australia and our region.
