Epidemiology and control of taeniasis/cysticercosis

This project will seek to parameterise and validate our existing (deterministic) EPICYST mathematical model with field data from Peru (and Madagascar) as well as to develop individual-based analogues to help the World Health Organization's goals of identifying and validating control intervention strategies against taeniasis/cysticercosis.
