Sensitivity analysis of the model of tuberculosis

Irina Petrova, Dmitry Gromov

Research outputpeer-review


In this contribution, a sufficiently simple, yet realistic model of TB propagation and control is studied in detail. We compute the controlled basic reproduction number R0(uB, uD) for the extended model including the action of two types of controls and analyze the sensitivity of R0(uB, uD) with respect to both controls following the recently devised approach. It is shown that the computed sensitivity coefficients admit a clear epidemiological interpretation and can be used in assessing the efficacy of the respective types of intervention.
