Strategies for controlling the epidemiology of many infectious diseases such as malaria include a rapid reduc-tion in both the infected and susceptible population via treatment and vaccination. In this paper, we have modified the Tumwiine et al. (2007) mathematical model for the transmission of malaria by including a vaccination parameter. We have shown that the model has a unique disease-free equilibrium state which is locally and globally asymptotically stable, if 1, and that the endemic equilibrium exist provided > 1, where is a parameter which depends on the given model parameters. Numerical simulations of the modified model clearly show that, with a proper combination of treatment and vaccination, offered at about 65% each on the susceptible and infected population, malaria can be eradicated from the community.
