The spread of diseases is dependent on several aspects, including the infectious source or agent, susceptible reservoirs and modes of transmission. These factors influence model development describing the disease dynamics. Thus, suitable models should be built, calibrated and adapted to a specific infectious diseases. Correspondingly, appropriate interventions should be identified to curb the spread of the disease. This symposium presents infectious disease models for new (COVID-19), rare (ebola) and neglected tropical diseases (rabies and schistosomiasis) and suggests policies to control the disease.
