We propose a mathematical model to investigate the effects of information-dependent vaccination behavior on meningitis transmission. The information is represented by means of information index as early proposed in (d'Onofrio et al., Theor. pop. biol., 2007). We perform a qualitative analysis based on stability theory, focusing to the global stability of the disease free equilibrium (DFE) and the related transcritical bifurcation taking place at the threshold for the DFE. Finally, we assess the… Expand

Global stability of an SIR epidemic model with information dependent vaccination.
TLDR
Numerical investigations are provided to show how the stability properties depend on the interplay between some relevant parameters of the model, and a special example of application of the geometric method for global stability, due to Li and Muldowney. Expand
Oscillations and hysteresis in an epidemic model with information-dependent imperfect vaccination
TLDR
The proposed model presents both the possibility of backward bifurcation and that of oscillations triggered by behavioral memory, and a forward hysteresis scenario may take place where multiple endemic states are possible when the basic reproduction number P 0 is greater than one. Expand
Mathematical Modelling of Bacterial Meningitis Transmission Dynamics with Control Measures
TLDR
Numerical simulation of the optimal problem demonstrates that the best strategy to control bacterial meningitis is to combine vaccination with other interventions (such as treatment and public health education), and stakeholders should press hard for the production of existing/new vaccines and antibiotics. Expand
Nonlinear dynamics of infectious diseases via information-induced vaccination and saturated treatment
TLDR
In this model, the effect of information on vaccination coverage is quantified when medical resources are limited during the epidemic outbreak and multiple stability switches are observed due to the saturated treatment and information-induced vaccination. Expand
Mathematical analysis of the dynamical transmission of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup A
TLDR
A deterministic mathematical model for the dynamical transmission of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup A (NmA) within a community is formulated and it is shown that there exists a threshold parameter ξ such that when the DFE is globally asymptotically stable while when, the model exhibits the phenomenon of backward bifurcation on a feasible region.

Vaccinating Behaviour and the Dynamics of Vaccine Preventable Infections
A main research area in the behavioural epidemiology (BE) of infectious diseases deals with the modelling of vaccinating behaviour under voluntary immunisation. We attempt to provide a broad overviewExpand
The Geometric Approach to Global Stability in Behavioral Epidemiology
TLDR
Three behavioral-epidemic models (i.e., epidemic systems including feedbacks that the information about an infectious disease has on its spreading) are introduced, with particular focus on a model of vaccination of adult susceptible subjects. Expand
Mathematical assessment of the role of environmental factors on the dynamical transmission of cholera
TLDR
A mathematical model for the dynamical transmission of cholera that incorporates the virulence ofacteria and the commensalism relationship between bacteria and the aquatic reservoirs on the persistence of the disease is proposed and the basic reproduction number R 0 is derived. Expand
MODELLING THE EFFECT OF VACCINATION ON THE MENINGOCOCCAL B EPIDEMIC IN NEW ZEALAND
TLDR
A framework for a mathematical model based on the susceptible–carrier–infectious–removed (SCIR) structure is proposed and shows that vaccination led to a considerable decrease in the incidence of infection compared to what would have been seen otherwise. Expand
Statistical physics of vaccination
TLDR
This report reviews the developmental arc of theoretical epidemiology with emphasis on vaccination, as it led from classical models assuming homogeneously mixing populations and ignoring human behavior, to recent models that account for behavioral feedback and/or population spatial/social structure.
