In the face of ever-increasing global health challenges, including the spread of COVID-19 infection, vaccine development, vaccine approval, improved logistics for vaccine delivery, hope for a healthy life in resurgent space exploration, and many others, decision-making has emerged as a critical area of research. Decision-making is critical in health policy and medical practice since it directly impacts the population’s well-being.

Decision-making analysis focuses on how rational choices are made and how they might be improved when faced with complexities, ambiguity, and conflicting values. Decision-making is primarily concerned with accomplishing a goal based on available and relevant information at the individual or organizational level. Additionally, decision-making is an analytical and systematic approach to problem-solving.
