Tim Brown, Senior Fellow
Work is currently underway to improve the underlying models used to guide policy, to update policy analysis tools to deal with new and evolving prevention technologies and to apply the models to epidemics beyond Asia. This presentation will discuss past and future modeling and policy analysis efforts at the Center with an emphasis on how the tools have evolved and where they’re going.
Tim Brown is a Senior Fellow in the Research Program at the East-West Center. He is currently working with UNAIDS, Global Fund, FHI, Futures Institute and numerous national and regional partners to develop estimation and projection tools and methodologies for global and Asia-specific application, implement more comprehensive policy analyses of low-level and concentrated HIV epidemics and effective responses to them, and support the development of improved strategic information systems for national policy analysis. He is a member of the UNAIDS Reference Group on Estimates, Modeling and Projections and serves as the HIV Focal Point of the Technical Review Panel of the Global Fund.
