Caricature of critical categories of modeling frameworks for studying dynamics of vector-borne diseases (green rhombus), types of data needed in such frameworks (orange oval) and their potential links (red arrow). \(S_V\) and \(I_V\) represent densities of susceptible and infectious vectors. \(S_H\), \(A_H\), \(I_H\) and \(R_H\) are human epidemiological stages representing susceptible, asymptomatic, infectious, and recovered stages. 1st and 2nd line are for types of treatments whereas DAT and rk39 are for diagnostic methods. Light green box represents the output from respective modeling frameworks. These frameworks are mere examples in each categories and hence, each one of them can incorporate more details depending on the goals
