The nature of communicable diseases results in unique epidemiological characteristics that must be accounted for when considering the epidemiological, clinical, and economic consequences of interventions that modify transmission. These interventions clearly include vaccines, but also drug treatments that may reduce the duration of infectiousness.
This webinar outlines the unique epidemiological characteristics of communicable diseases and demonstrates how correctly accounting for these in clinical and economic assessments of interventions can capture the full value of these interventions. Some of the challenges faced when performing these analyses are also addressed.
