It is now widely agreed upon that most infectious diseases require a dynamic approach to validly analyze infectious disease control. Given the size of the spread and the potential impact, pandemic influenza certainly presents an area where dynamic modeling is much needed. In this article, a dynamic model used for pandemic influenza is analyzed. The future challenge is to couple such complex dynamic models to economic information to inform decision-makers on the relative cost-effectiveness of interventions.
