This model is intended to give a feeling how bad an epidemic can get if we “do nothing”, meaning R0 stays constant with time. Many parameters have a range of uncertainty, therefore every parameter have an average value and a +/- range, and the Monte Carlo chooses a value in this range, uniformly distributed over the range. This models the basic compartments of Susceptible, Exposed, Infected, Critical, Dead and Recovered. Only the non-immuned population can get exposed. Infected can either become Critical (needing ICU) or Recovered. Critical can become Dead or Recovered.
Note: Looping over many Monte Carlo rounds improves the noise but takes longer. 200 rounds were good for the median graphs, 1000 were needed for good histograms.

Access to Essential Drugs

One third of children, women and men have no access to essential medicines, putting lives at risk. Hospitals frequently run out of medicines and other essential supplies. Our Med-Aid program connects hospitals with aid and ensures that they receive exactly what they need.

Access to Diagnostics

Much of today’s innovation is either not reaching or not suitable for people in developing countries.

Data to Improve Health

Faster and reactive systems to help provide lifesaving support to vulnerable communities.
