Modelling, Malaria, Epidemic
The purpose of this paper is to consider malaria infection (A) and the control of malaria (B) as the two sets of soldiers engage in a war. The principal objectives are to see if it is possible with time to reduce and eradicate malaria in our environment taking reasonable precaution. The methodology approach is to model a mathematical equation using battling method approach to find the time(t) that control malaria in our environment will conquer the malaria infection i.e. when A(t)=0. The number of provided facilities (n) for the protection of malaria is also considered and varied. The result shows that as the number of malaria control increases the control time is decreasing.
