A large proportion of human malaria infections is asymptomatic, yet serves as a reservoir that sustains malaria transmission. To achieve malaria elimination, it is important to understand how asymptomatic infections affect malaria transmission among humans. Here we propose a simple mathematical model of malaria transmission with both symptomatic and asymptomatic infections, and investigate the effect of interventions targeting the reservoir population during an early phase of malaria spread under different transmission settings.
