Health Systems Research and Dynamical Modelling

The Health Systems Research and Dynamical Modelling unit combines systems science for health systems strengthening with computational sciences, statistical and mathematical modeling to better understand and provide evidence to address contemporary issues in global health. We focus on understanding disease transmission dynamics, specific system-level interventions, as well as health interventions in a systems context as part of the Institute’s goal of creating global leadership in infectious disease modelling and integrated health systems research, strengthening and training. Our networks include close partnerships with major research institutions and health systems in low- and middle-income countries as well as well as in Switzerland.

Our research groups combine expertise in health systems analysis, health policy analysis, health economics, statistical and mathematical modelling, and public health computing sciences. Our research is intended to inform both, global health research donors and public health policy makers, of the appropriate priorities, strategies, innovations and resource allocation for effective and equitable health development from household to national levels.
