Malaria is an infectious disease present all around the globe and responsible for half a million deaths per year. A within-host model of this infection requires a framework capable of properly approximating not only the blood stage of the infection but also the erythropoietic process that is in charge of overcoming the malaria induced anemia. Within this context, we compare ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with and without age classes, delayed differential equations (DDEs), and discrete… CONTINUE READING
