Diseases which are transmitted by vector mosquitoes are major health problems in many countries. Although many mathematical models for diseases had been formulated, they are customized. As these diseases are spread by a common vector, similarities in the disease transmission are notable hence it will be beneficial to construct a general model which encompasses the epidemiology aspects and transmission of mosquito-borne diseases. In this paper, a SI (Susceptible-Infectious) generic model for mosquito borne diseases is formulated. The model is made up of partial differential reaction-diffusion equations which incorporate both the human and mosquito populations. Numerical simulation of this model is presented.
