The TB Modeling and Analysis Consortium (TB MAC) aims to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of TB care and prevention policy and practice at global and country levels, and to contribute to a better understanding of the epidemiological and health system processes that generate TB outcomes.The consortium enables activities to support all modellers, economists and decision makers, to encourage diversity in approaches and engagement. We use a transparent, supportive and collaborative approach. TB MAC is open to anyone interested in using mathematical models or other quantitative methods to answer TB care and prevention questions.
