Strategic Immunization Geotemporal Mapping Application (SIGMA)

Organization:
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

This project aims to develop the Strategic Immunization Geo‐temporal Mapping Application (SIGMA), a computational modelling tool, and utilize SIGMA for a pilot country (Mozambique) to: (1) evaluate their current logistics of immunizing adults (i.e., cost, access, demand fulfilment, and vulnerabilities); (2) identify adult vaccination strategies to make the system more efficient, effective, and cost effective; (3) determine the return‐on‐investment (ROI) of these strategies (cost‐effectiveness); and (4) estimate funding required to implement adult immunization strategies at defined price levels.
