Scenario Analysis

Scenario Analysis: Overview

In the scenario analysis, you have the option to assess to model and compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of alternative strategies (or scenarios) in terms of prioritisation of different target populations, selection of different groups of preventive and curative interventions and identification of different strategies to address bottlenecks for effective coverage of these interventions.

It is important to note that the scenario analysis works in a top-down and stepwise approach. You will identify priority areas in the following order of steps:

  1. Targeted population
  2. Epidemiological priorities
  3. Interventions
  4. Bottleneck
  5. Causes
  6. Strategies
  7. Impact & Cost

As a first time user, you should add your own scenario. To do this, click “add”. Once you click “add”, the following screen will appear:

Scenario Details

  1. You will want to enter a scenario name for your analysis that is specific e.g. “Sabrina Scenario test 18 Nov”
  2. You can provide description of the scenario with all the required details.
  3. Enter a start and end date for your analysis based upon your scenario type. For example, if you are working within a National Plan for your country context that develops 4-year plans, you may want to select a start date and end date with year which lies within 2015 to 2019.
  4. Once you are finished entering your scenario details, click save.
