Be-CoDiS (Between-COuntries Disease Spread) epidemiological model

 

 

 

What is Be-CoDiS?

 

 

Be-CoDiS (Between-COuntries Disease Spread) is a spatial and temporal epidemiological model to study the evolution of human diseases between countries. The goal is to simulate the spread of a particular disease and identify risk zones worldwide. The main characteristics of Be-CoDiS are the consideration of the migratory flux between countries and control measure effects and the use of time dependent coefficients adapted to each country.

 

 

How to run the model?

 

*    Requirements: Matlab (tested with 2011a or later)

*    Launch Matlab 

*    Open the M-script 'becodis.m'

*    Modify the proposed options and parameters at glance

*    Run ‘becodis.m’ to perform a simulation
