This paper considers a basic model for a spread of two diseases in a population. The equilibria of the model are found, and their stability is investigated. In particular, we prove the stability result for a disease-free and a one-disease steady-states. Bifurcation diagrams are used to analyse the stability of possible branches of equilibria, and also they indicate the existence of a co-infected equilibrium with both diseases present. Finally, numerical simulations of the model are performed to study the behaviour of the solutions in different regions of the parameter space.
