Mathematical model for the effects of treatment and vaccination controls on the dynamics of rotavirus disease with reference to Uganda

In this paper, while Rotavirus has been a recognised disease for a long time in developing countries like Uganda, the control of this endemic disease is still a challenge. We formulated a mathematical model for the dynamics of Rotavirus disease with both treatment and vaccination. The equilibrium points are determined. The disease free equilibrium points are shown to be locally and globally asymptotically stable. We analyzed different reproduction numbers at different doses of vaccination with treatment. Numerical results indicate that rotavirus can be reduced when one or both interventions are implemented. The study recommends that children should always be treated and also complete all their doses of rotavirus vaccines so as to reduce severe infections.
