Insecticide control in a dengue epidemics model

By Helena Sofia Rodrigues, M. Teresa, T. Monteiro and Delfim F. M. Torres

Abstract

Abstract. A model for the transmission of dengue disease is presented. It consists of eight mutually-exclusive compartments representing the human and vector dynamics. It also includes a control parameter (insecticide) in order to fight the mosquitoes. The main goal of this work is to investigate the best way to apply the control in order to effectively reduce the number of infected humans and mosquitoes. A case study, using data of the outbreak that occurred in 2009 in Cape Verde, is presented
