Led by Asst Prof Wirichada Pan-ngum, Acting Head, MAEMOD, the Neglected Tropical Diseases Modelling (NTDM) Group focuses on regional health problems, mostly neglected tropical diseases such as leptospirosis, melioidosis, dengue, and tuberculosis.

The NTDM team uses a modelling approach to explore specific issues that may become relevant to infectious diseases including aging populations, health attitudes and practices, chronic infections such as diabetes, climate change, life style and urbanization. The team combines modelling with community health research, population surveys and qualitative studies. They use surveys to refine their research questions and plan for effective implementation of new interventions.
