Modelling and Public Health: the Canadian Databases for Vector Diseases
In 2016, public health practitioners and analysts, as well as mathematical modelling researchers, were brought together to learn how the two disciplines – modelling and public health – can collaborate to improve disease prevention and control. In order to explore this new frontier, they require data on vectors (such as mosquitoes) that can be used to predict emerging diseases. The NCCID and NCCEH have partnered to create the Canadian Databases for Disease Vectors in order to fill this gap.

In the context of the pilot project Structural analysis of health-relevant policy-making information exchange networks funded by CIHR and in partnership with the NCCHPP, the project's research team is developing a way to map and analyze the social networks through which evidence flows from its places of production to its utilization settings. The complete research protocol is available here.

The data needed to understand those networks is currently being collected through a very short online survey (5 minutes).
