Simulating the Transmission of Foot-And-Mouth Disease Among Mobile Herds in the Far North Region, Cameroon 1.0.0
The purpose of the model is to understand how host mobility affects disease transmission. More specifically, we examine the impact of seasonal movements and daily grazing activities of mobile pastoralists on the transmission of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in the Far North Region of Cameroon.
This model was used for the simulations that we published in the following paper: Kim, Hyeyoung, Xiao, Ningchuan, Moritz, Mark, Garabed, Rebecca and Pomeroy, Laura W.
