Generating demand and supply estimates to inform the value of dengue vaccine introduction: National and regional level analyses

Understanding and acting on the factors that influence demand and uptake are critical for a dengue vaccine to see significant use. This analysis is an essential component for accelerated, rational introduction of dengue vaccines. Evidence from this analysis will be used in the development of country-specific investment cases to support the introduction of the dengue vaccine in Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Paraguay, El Salvador and Peru. JHU IVAC will quantify the global potential demand for dengue vaccines with given sets of characteristics and to determine the factors that would drive demand, the obstacles that would impede demand and the political scenarios that would affect demand. This will require extensive knowledge of the different dengue vaccine characteristics that influence demand, price, and effectiveness as well as the epidemiology of dengue within countries considering vaccine introduction.

This project builds on work that has already been completed by JHU IVAC at a global, regional and country level. The student will work on further developing the current SDF model (e.g. survey refinement, collecting data), conducting further analyses, writing results, and presenting findings.
