Application: Pandemic Influenza Containment Strategy


Network of infectious contactsIn the event that a new influenza strain emerges, an effective vaccine would not be available for six to nine months, ample time for the new strain to spread globally.  New, adaptable strategies that are robust to uncertainty must be developed to contain potential influenza pandemics until a vaccine is available. In our effort to engineer optimal community-level containment strategies to control pandemic influenza, we developed a community-level model of disease spread from individual scale up through multiple, linked social networks. The strategic approaches that emerged from our analyses became the cornerstone of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC's) policy for community response to potential pandemic influenza strains.
