Research in health economics includes: (1) estimating the economic impact of infectious diseases; (2) societal preferences for health care prioritization; (3) QALY estimation in children and their caregivers; (4) identifying determinants of medical consumption (especially antibiotics); (5) acknowledging uncertainty in decision analytical
Applications include mostly infectious diseases such as: varicella-zoster virus, seasonal and pandemic influenza, rotavirus, pneumococcus, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, human papillomavirus, pertussis, measles, polio and dengue.
We also undertook ad-hoc applied research for non-infectious disease in diverse fields of medicine, such as pediatrics, cardiology, dermatology, nephrology, hematology and psychiatry
Modeling infectious Diseases
CHERMID researches modelling challenges such as: (1) integrating between-host transmission and within-host immunological dynamics in models; (2) demonstrating model fit and validity of compartmental, network and individual-based dynamic transmission models (IBM) ; (3) Computational optimisation of IBMs; (4) estimating social mixing patterns relevant to infectious disease transmission; (5) real time analysis of outbreak data.
Applications of such studies cover seasonal and pandemic influenza, rotavirus, pneumococcus, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, human papillomavirus, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella-zoster virus, parvovirus B19, cytomegalovirus, malaria, HIV, ebola and dengue.
