We study a simple mathematical model for the co-infection of HIV and HCV. We study local stability of the disease free equilibria for the full model and for the two submodels (HCV only and HIV only submodels). We observe that the model predicts four distinct equilibria, the disease free, the HIV only, the HCV only, and the full endemic equilibria. We conclude that the model is well presented epidemiologically and mathematically.
