This report, part of the Roll Back Malaria Progress & Impact Series, provides an overview of mathematical modelling, explains its history in relation to epidemiology and malaria, and details its implications and uses for global and national malaria control and elimination planning. The report aims to expand the dialogue within the global malaria community—and among public health decision-makers in particular—on when and how mathematical modelling can help inform malaria control programs and policies.
