This document is the causal analysis framework of the health policies toolkit and it will be used as the base for the development of the software prototype that applies to the health analytics layer in CrowdHEALTH architecture (D5.15). This framework is focusing on the analysis of actions and events in the Use Case scenarios aiming to estimate the applicability and the effectiveness of the current health policies referring to the specific case. Moreover, based on the information collected, the causal analysis framework will provide information to the forecasting model in order to produce future recommendations to the policy makers.
In particular the following topics will be specified here:
- An introduction to causal analysis for public health policies.
- The causal analysis and forecasting methods.
- The Causal Analysis framework design.
- The related information from the Use Case Partners.
