ABSTRACT: In the Statistical modelling of life science, we employ the use of the non-parametric and semi-parametric models in the implementation of our investigation of children’s nutritional status by means of their anthropometric measurements, and also modelled infectious diseases such as HIV AIDS and COVID-19. The modelling of some non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetics are also considered in this work as well as employing the use of imagery in the identification of diseases such as Malaria and Tuberculosis.
