The main focus of this work is on the use of PSPO to maximize the pseudo-likelihood of a stochastic epidemiological model to data from a 1861 measles outbreak in Hagelloch, Germany.
Age of sexual partner is a major risk factor for HIV acquisition in both men and women, independent of one’s own age.
The South African government is currently discussing various alternative approaches to the further expansion of antiretroviral treatment (ART) in public-sector facilities.
Migrant populations such as mine workers contributed to the spread of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.
In the last 20 years, China ramped up a DOTS (directly observed treatment, short-course)-based tuberculosis (TB) control program with 80% population coverage, achieving the 20
In the last 20 years, China ramped up a DOTS (directly observed treatment, short-course)-based tuberculosis (TB) control program with 80% population coverage, achieving the 2015 Millennium Developm
Decision makers need efficient algorithms to draw meaningful conclusions from detailed stochastic simulations with respect to a goal-oriented objective.
Evidence that antiretroviral therapy reduces HIV infectiousness, suggests that increasing the number of HIV-positive adults who are on treatment could have the potential to change the course of the
Recent scientific findings have demonstrated the efficacy and effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for preventing transmission in heterosexual partnerships.
The difficulty of choosing a strategy for allocating transmission-blocking interventions stems from an incomplete picture of the epidemiological drivers of generalized HIV epidemics, such as the ep
This paper presents an algorithm to form heterosexual relationships of a desired joint age–mixing distribution. It includes control of the rates at which individuals seek new relationshi
Mathematical modelling is used to investigate the potential impact of treatment on HIV incidence but substantial uncertainties will remain because information on all the factors that could influenc
Several mathematical models that simulate HIV infection and disease progression have been developed to investigate the impact of expanding access to ART on the incidence of HIV (the number of new i
