The Malaria Modeling Consortium (MMC) is a collaborative effort between mathematical modeling groups to provide consensus advice in support of global malaria policy and research. The analyses we conduct contribute both to furthering the scientific research agenda for malaria, and to formulating specific policy recommendations for achieving and sustaining malaria elimination. We aim to:
- Identify key questions for which mathematical modeling can provide unique insights to help plan and implement malaria elimination efforts at the global, national, and local levels.
- Provide consensus advice on these questions by coordinating the work of independent modeling groups and synthesizing their results.
- Provide support to national malaria elimination programs and the organizations they collaborate with, with an emphasis on our focus geographies of Cambodia, Haiti, and Zambia.
- Facilitate the sharing of ideas, modeling approaches, and data between modeling groups, and provide a forum for scientific critique of malaria modeling research.
