In this paper, we consider an epidemic model of vector host with non-linear incidences. The spread of the disease is due to the vector such as malaria, dengue and yellow fever. We use the homotopy perturbation method to the consider model to obtain their analytical and numerical solution. Due to the importance of homotopy method a just few perturbation terms are sufficient for a reasonably accurate solution. The numerical results are presented for justification.
