Welcome to IDM malaria modeling

The Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) develops complex software for disease modeling. The primary software, Epidemiological MODeling software (EMOD), helps determine the combination of health policies and intervention strategies that can lead to disease eradication. We share this modeling software with the research community to advance the understanding of disease dynamics.

Documentation structure

We recently separated the documentation into disease-specific documentation. For example, this documentation set includes general installation and usage instructions in addition to content specific to modeling malaria and other vector-borne diseases.

“Using the model” contains information for researchers who want to create simulations of disease dynamics using EMOD as developed by IDM.

“Advancing the model” contains information for researchers and developers who want to modify the EMOD source code to add more functionality to the model.
