NEEMA Web Tools

NEEMA supports development of a variety of web- and spreadsheet-based tools designed to provide state health policy makers and practitioners with information on local population sizes, disease trends, and cost projects for a variety of prevention strategies related to adolescent and school health, HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis.

Tuberculosis
Projections of future tuberculosis (TB) epidemiology in the United States under a range of TB and LTBI testing and treatment scenarios that can be chosen by the user.

Tabby directly reproduces numbers from Menzies et.al published in 2018. Tabby 2 updates the underlying data and adds functionality to predict TB in individual states. Both Tabby and Tabby 2 include predefined intervention scenarios to provide projections of TB trajectory. Custom hypothetical scenarios allow users to select health outcomes and population groups of interest and compare different scenarios.

Hep C State Policy Simulator

The Hep C State Policy Simulator (the Simulator) is a tool to help state heath policy makers and practitioners make decisions regarding policy, strategy, and investments related to hepatitis C. The Simulator was developed by Mass General Hospital and Harvard Medical School with support from CDC through a cooperative agreement awarded to ChangeLab Solutions.

Creation of Hep C State Policy Simulator was supported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through a Cooperative Agreement number NU38OT000141.
