Tetyana Chumachenko, Olga Radyvonenko


In this paper the model to study risk factors for hepatitis B and to identify the main causes affecting the incidence of hepatitis B was developed. Proposed model allows to identify the dependencies between the risk factors and the hepatitis B morbidity, detect major factors that affect the intensity of the epidemic process and verify the effectiveness of preventive measures. As a result the program was developed, which allows to improve the quality of management decisions at epidemiological surveillance.
