In this paper, a fractional order model to study the spread of HCV-subtype 4a amongst the Egyptian population is constructed. The stability of the boundary and positive fixed points is studied. The generalized Adams-Bashforth-Moulton method is used to solve and simulate the system of fractional differential equations.
