This thesis has developed a framework for managing and monitoring novel and endemic infectious diseases in Australia, with a focus on the role of individual behaviours in influencing overall disease spread outcomes. The methodology has covered the development of an agent-based microsimulation model with individual behaviours, an early warning system to monitoring infectious disease cases and potential waves, and an evidence-based scenario tool for embedding a pandemic pulse into preparedness capability.
