Abstract— This paper presents the basic reproductive number of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria as well as endemic prevalence using the SIR model developed by Mckendric (2001).
The Basic reproduction number Ro determines if the disease is transmissible or it will die a natural death, and the endemic prevalence gives a clue on the rate of transmission of the disease. This study obtained both the Ro and the endemic prevalence as a tool for controlling the endemic in an SIR model of disease dynamics.
Keywords— Endemic prevalence, Basic Reproductive number, Disease transmission, Disease dynamics
