Sensitivity Analysis of Lassa fever Model (Published)

A Mathematical Model was developed for the spread and control of Lassa Lever. Existence and stability were analysed for disease free equilibrium. Key to our analysis is the basic reproductive number which is an important threshold for disease control. Reasonable sets of values for the parameter in the model were compiled, and sensitivity analysis indices of around the baseline parameter value were computed, which shows that the most sensitive parameter to is human birth rate , followed by condom efficacy and compliance. Further, the numerical computation of gave a value of 0.129, finally, numerical simulations were obtained that illustrates the effects of the control parameters on the various compartments of the model.
