Agent-based investigation of sexually transmitted infection


Every year nearly 12 million new cases of syphilis in the world are registered. Currently, in many countries of the world the stabilization or even reduction of the incidence of syphilis is marked, but this does not apply to Ukraine. The current stage of development of the syphilis problem in Ukraine is characterized by not only high morbidity, but also the fact that in the overwhelming number of cases, we are talking about the latent forms and atypical manifestations of the disease and resistance to therapy [1]. Preventive and prophylactic measures are important in maintaining the public health. Predicting the dynamics of disease spreading allows developing appropriate countermeasures and ensuring rational use of human and material resources. Qualitative forecast of syphilis spreading is possible to implement by means of mathematical modeling.
