Project Description

To provide technical support using modelling to guide the overall strategic approach for COVID-19 vaccination deployment in the Western Pacific Region (WPR) to assist countries with decisions around risk and benefit of vaccination and vaccination optimization. It also aims to continue updating estimates and projections with changing scenarios as requested by the governments of Malaysia and the Philippines and to include additional model components addressing circulating variants of concern.
