In addition to a large number of death toll, chronic diseases and their associated comorbid conditions have been causing enormous health expenses worldwide. This research project aims at developing models to estimate the health burden resulting from chronic diseases and their comorbid conditions. For this purpose, this research project will use Markov models, Bayesian statistics, and methods and measures from Complex networks.
