A mathematical model is presented to examine the interaction between human and vector populations. The model consists of five control strategies i.e. campaign aimed in educating careless individuals as a mean of minimizing or eliminating mosquito-human contact, control effort aimed at reducing mosquito-human contact, the control effort for removing vector breeding places, insecticide application and the control effort aimed at reducing the maturation rate from larvae to adult in order to reduce the number of infected individual. Optimal Control (OC) approach is used in order to find the best strategy to fight the disease and minimize the cost.
