This workshop gathered 45 participants from 16 countries and had a correspondingly multifaceted program covering various infectious diseases, public health applications, and methodological innovations. The discussions and presentations focused on the importance of mathematical models and statistical analyses in understanding the complex transmission systems of infectious diseases and in planning effective intervention strategies. Many different statistical and mathematical approaches were covered. The general unifying theme is that the analyses and models take into account the underlying transmission of the infectious agent among the hosts and/ or vector populations.
