Abstract

An SI epidemic model with a general shape of density-dependent mortality and incidence rate is studied. The asymptotic behaviour is global convergence to an endemic equilibrium, above a threshold, and to a disease-free equilibrium, below the threshold. The effect of vaccination is then examined.
