An Agent-based Modeling Approach Applied to the Spread of Cholera

This page relates to the following publication:
Crooks, A.T. and Hailegiorgis, A.B. (2014), An Agent-based Modeling Approach Applied to the Spread of Cholera, Environmental Modelling and Software, 62: 164-177 (pdf
Within this page you will find additional information about our agent-based model which explores the spread of cholera within the Dadaab refugee camps. Including 

Cholera transmission through the interaction of host and the environment. The progress of cholera transmission is represented as SEIR model. S = susceptible, E=Exposed, Ia= Infected (asymptomatic), Is= Infected (symptomatic), R= Recovered.
