  • Abstract:

    Methods

    We develop an Agent-Based Model (ABM) using NetLogo simulation software. ABMs allow for modelling complex adaptive systems, such as patient care seeking behaviour and medicine supply processes that evolve over time. We evaluate the impact of interventions to improve medicinal quality and/or reduce substandard and falsified medicines.
