ABSTRACT:-The disease dynamics and progression of HIV-MTCT over a period of time and disease transmission and susceptible simulation model (DTSM-MODEL) were computed by different reproduction numbers for each time interval with set of fixed values of the parameters. As per the model, study found that placental absorption ,prolonged breast feeding and absence of ARV at the onset of birth or delivery, after six hours of birth ,prolonged breast feeding influenced factors for increase of MTCT of HIV infection (Karnataka).DTSM model achieved local asymptotically stabilization , globally disease Free endemic equilibrium ( and consistently maintained endemic equilibrium
