Title: Reflections on Modelling for Infectious Diseases in the Framework of a One Health Approach
Abstract: Modelling is a simplification approach that aims to help understand, predict and help make decisions. The health crisis of the last two years has brought to light modelling in epidemiology, which has been around for a long time. Modelling in epidemiology can take very different formats depending on the objectives, data and knowledge available. The interests and disadvantages are not the same depending on the methods used, but there are still common points and points of vigilance. The modelling of infectious diseases within the framework of a “One Health” approach requires taking into account the specificities of animal and environmental populations. These specificities vary according to the scales considered and the objectives envisaged. The presentation will be based on various examples and new approaches will be discussed.
