    • malaria
    • COVID-19
    • meningitis A / multivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MMCV)
    • hepatitis B
  • other cross-cutting groups that will add value to the Consortium, e.g. focusing on
    • operational aspects
    • health economics
    • impact of climate on disease dynamics
    • geospatial aspects

Successful models will be invited to join the Consortium as full members and will receive core-funding of up to USD $73,000 or GBP £60,000 per year.

Applicants must be based in a university or other academic/research institution. Prior modelling experience is essential, and models must already be developed and in use. For some categories, applications are restricted to LMIC-based groups, with priority given to specific countries/regions.
