Longe I. O., Adeniran A. O., Longe B. E.


Hepatitis B is one of the viral diseases that is treating the global health, in this study, a classical SIR model for Hepatitis B transmission is considered. Based on the available data from the Ondo State Ministry of Health, associate parameters are estimated and the fitted model is shown by appropriate simulations. The basis reproduction number is obtained and other sensitivity analysis carried out. The result of the study shows that Hepatitis B can be eradicated if effort is geared at vaccinating susceptible individual to make rate of infection low and recovery rate high.
