Inspired by collaborative and multidisciplinary efforts in the scientific community, the Institute for Disease Modeling builds modeling tools that result from extensive collaboration among members of our research and software teams. These innovative tools provide quantitative and analytical means to model the transmission of infectious diseases. IDM software tools are freely shared with the scientific community to accelerate disease eradication efforts using computational modeling.

  • Compartmental Modeling Software (CMS)

    CMS enables you to construct a stochastic compartmental model using a variety of different solvers.

  • Covasim

    Covasim is a stochastic agent-based simulator designed to be used for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2) epidemic analyses.

  • COVID Health Systems

    The COVID Health Systems model is intended to make projections for the number of AAC and ICU hospital beds needed for COVID-19 patients and to estimate the patient waiting time for those beds. It provides a graphical UI using the SIMUL8 platform.

  • Epidemiological MODeling software (EMOD)

    EMOD simulates the spread of disease to help determine the combination of health policies and intervention strategies that can lead to disease eradication. EMOD is a stochastic, mechanistic, agent-based model that simulates the actions and interactions of individuals within geographic areas to understand the disease dynamics in a population over time.

  • FPsim

    FPsim is designed as an open-source tool for family planning research.

  • Gene Drive

    The Gene Drive dashboard enables you to explore the effects of a single release of gene drive mosquitoes with different values of various gene drive system and vector population parameters on malaria elimination probabilities and prevalence, as well as vector populations and genetics.

  • HIV Leaky Vaccine

    The Leaky Vaccine dashboard is an online tool to explore the effects of exposure heterogeneity on HIV vaccine efficacy, given a leaky vaccine.

  • HPVsim

    HPVsim is a flexible agent-based model that can be parameterized with country-specific vital dynamics, structured sexual networks, co-transmitting HPV genotypes, B- and T-cell mediated immunity, and high-resolution disease natural history.

  • idmtools

    idmtools is a collection of Python scripts and utilities created to streamline user interactions with disease models, from the creation of input files (if required), to commissioning and running simulations, through the analysis of results.


    PACE-HRH simulates the healthcare needs of a given population so you can more effectively plan what healthcare worker resources will be necessary to provide a wide range of healthcare services. The model is configured via Excel sheets and run via an R script.
