  • In this paper we propose a two-group SIR age of infection epidemic model by incorporating periodical behavioral changes for both susceptible and infected individuals. Our model allows different incubation periods for the two groups. It is proved in this paper that the persistence and extinction of the disease are determined by a threshold condition given in term of the basic reproductive number $ R_0 $. That is, the disease is uniformly persistent if $ R_0 >1 $ with the existence of a positive periodic solution, while the disease goes to extinction if $ R_0< 1 $ with the global asymptotic stability of the disease free periodic solution. The model we have proposed is general and can be applied to a wide class of diseases.
