Vector-borne disease package
This package implements a number of vector-borne disease models in Birch. They are useful for modelling epidemics of mosquito-borne diseases such as Zika and dengue. The original model is described in Funk et al. (2016), and the particular model implemented here in Murray et al. (2018).
