The Benin experience: how computational modeling can assist major vaccine policy changes in low and middle income countries.
The authors discuss some of the key steps and lessons learned in their Benin experience that helped computational modeling inform and lead to major policy change. The key steps are: engagement of Ministry of Health, identifying in-country “champions,” directed and efficient data collection, defining a finite set of realistic scenarios, making the study methodology transparent, presenting the results in a clear manner, and facilitating decision-making and advocacy.
