SACEMA Quaterly (Online magazine of South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis )

SACEMA Quarterly is an online magazine produced every three months by SACEMA, the DST/NRF Centre of Excellence in Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis.

The aim is to provide regular updates, articles and reviews of developments in the world of quantitative epidemiology, with particular reference to the human health in the South African scene and to advances in the fight against the twin scourges of HIV and TB. Whereas a lot of the work of SACEMA is of a highly technical and mathematical nature, the intention of the magazine is to present this work in a way that it will be accessible to the lay-person and, most importantly, to the interested health professional and policy-maker.
