From: Interpreting malaria age-prevalence and incidence curves: a simulation study of the effects of different types of heterogeneity

Input Value
Transmission intensity 21 infected bites per year per adult
Seasonality Perennial with seasonal peaks (Namawala, Tanzania [39])
Treatment-seeking 0.2 per fever-5 day interval
Treatment drug ACT (clears all infections)
Demographic age-distribution Ifakara, Tanzania [53]
  1. These values were used in previous simulations [3537]
  2. This value is higher than previous simulations to allow the effect of treatment heterogeneity to show clearly
