A Markov Chain Model Of Plasmodium Falciparum Parasitemia Transmission
Author(s): Michael A. Pobbi and Francis T Oduro
Plasmodium falciparum is responsible for over 88% of the clinical cases of malaria in Ghana. Approximately 20,000 children die from Malaria every year. Quantification of the disease parameters helps in the description and understanding of the disease dynamics. This work seeks to use a mathematical modeling to quantify and explain disease metrics, using Secondary data. Markov chain is a stochastic process in which the conditional probability of any future event, depends only upon the present state.
