Title : Development and application of spatio-temporal models for estimation of prevalence of infectious diseases in Western and Southern Africa (R-8991)
Abstract: Mozambique is a low-income country in Southern Africa with about 54% of the population living below the poverty line. There has been promising progress in some of the health-related millennium development goals, while other health outcomes are still unsatisfactory (WHO). There are considerable local differences in the prevalence and spread of infectious diseases. The ebola virus in Western Africa impacted some of the countries more as compared to other countries. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique differs a lot depending on the district, as a result of differences in poverty, living habits and education. Changes in the evolution on knowledge about measures to control malaria are different for different localities. In this project, we want to better understand the local differences, and therefore, statistical methods are applied and developed to study these spatial and spatio-temporal differences.
