Spectrum is a suite of easy to use policy models which provide policymakers with an analytical tool to support decision making processes. Spectrum was used in modelling the magnitude of the HIV epidemic and the demographic, social and economic impacts in Swaziland. The projections were generated by a Mutisectoral Estimates and Projections Core Team led by NERCHA, in 2015.
