Quantifying the value of surveillance data for improving model predictions of lymphatic filariasis elimination

Parameter constraint achieved through the coupling of EPIFIL with data.

Overall parameter constraint was measured as the ratio of the mean standard deviation of the fitted parameter distributions to that of the prior parameter distributions. Values < 1 indicate that the fitted parameter space was constrained compared to the prior parameter space. The results show that the fitted parameter space for Kirare and Peneng was more constrained by calibrating the model to data compared to the model-only scenario, but this was not the case for Alagramam.
