Here, we introduce a newly developed online web interface for the lymphatic filariasis transmission model TRANSFIL, which is validated for Wucheria bancrofti transmission and has been used in a recent study of the potential impact of the new triple drug. We hope this demonstrates how modern web technologies can be exploited to produce model interfaces that are able to overcome the challenges listed above, although some challenges remain. This tool is targeted at users who have some awareness of and an interest in mathematical modelling for lymphatic filariasis policy and who would like to investigate the models further, but who do not have the technical expertise to program the models themselves. This will include some researchers and policy makers in the area of NTDs. We hope it will generate an active discussion between the modellers and these users on what types of analyses are most useful for these users.
