Predicting behavioral influences on epidemic dynamics

Behavioral changes in response to infectious disease outbreaks can have strong effects on the course of the outbreak. For example, patterns of social mixing and healthcare-seeking may shift in response to information about the outbreak and alter disease dynamics, or the patterns may fail to change in ways anticipated. Outbreak models that account for behavior could improve predictions and identification of intervention strategies to control the outbreak, but many models do not account for these influences, or use generic inputs that do not adequately represent the population of interest.
