Modeling Gonorrhea in a Population Divided into Eight Groups
In Chapters 4 and 5, the population was divided into two groups. Here the population is divided according to sex, the level of sexual activity and whether the infections are symptomatic or asymptomatic. There are eight groups representing the eight combinations, such as the male-highly active-asymptomatic group. This population dynamics model is used to compare the effectiveness of six control methods for gonorrhea involving population screening and contact tracing of selected groups. A condensed version of the results in this chapter appeared in a paper (Hethcote, Yorke and Nold, 1982).
