Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A mathematical model of malaria transmission with the inflow of infective immi-
grants is presented. The epidemic threshold, existence of equilibria as well as permanence criteria of the model are investigated. The model is extended to incorporate and analyse the effects of seasonality in the transmission rates. Finally numerical analysis is carried out to determine the behaviour of the models under different scenarios.
