Title: Control of Cholera: Mathematical Modeling Approach

Abstract: Current epidemiological transition is accentuated by loss in biodiversity and other environmental factors. Emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases is the phenomena evident on global level. Cholera was one of the earliest infections to be studied by epidemiological methods. To control epidemic outbreak statistical results may have been affected by the particular setting i.e. the rural or urban settings, with higher densities of population and dwellings, might lead to a different transmission pattern. Efficient health education programs and climatic factors are also likely to have an impact on the evolution and control of epidemics. The provision of safe water and sanitation in emergencies is a formidable challenge but remains the critical factor in reducing the impact of cholera outbreaks. Time is of the essence and urgent action is required. The decision-making and preparatory phase is often extremely short in case of Cholera. My talk is about the control of transmission of cholera epidemic with role of time-delay factor, modeled and analyzed with help of stability theory of differential equations.
