Overview

Types
(1) Disease Dynamics
Overview

This model can be used to understand vector dynamics and therefore dynamics of malaria spread.

Question

What is the spatial distribution and time dependent density of Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles arabiensis? Can this model be used to predict the presence and abundance of these species?

Purpose

Forecasting

Goals
(1) Early detection
