Modeling and Economics Research Network (ModERN)

Modeling and economic studies are becoming increasingly important to inform and guide public health research and decision making. The newly created Modeling and Economic Research Network (ModERN) links modelers and health economists in 5 Canadian provinces. The network will undertake epidemiological analyses, mathematical modeling, and economics analyses to study the cost-effectiveness and population-level effectiveness of public health interventions.

Along with the Social Sciences and Humanities and Reference Laboratory Networks, ModERN will serve as a support system to the five core CIRN infrastructures.
