Abstract

A Mathematical model of a system of non-linear differential equation is developed to study the transmission dynamics of malaria, dengue and typhoid triple infection. In this work, the basic reproduction number is derived using the Next Generation Matrix, also we computed the disease free equilibrium point. The disease free equilibrium (DFE) point is analyzed and was found that the DFE is locally stable but may be globally unstable when R0 < 1.

Keywords:
Malaria, dengue, typhoid, co-infection, reproduction number, stability analysis, disease-free equilibrium.
