Dedication to Jan Barendregt
For Jan Barendregt, without whose technical expertise in epidemiological modelling this project would not have been possible. Jan’s life ended too soon, and he will be sorely missed. His work will continue to inform and influence health decision making, and this will add healthy years to the lives of countless anonymous others around the world for many decades to come.
