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.
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
Mathematical models of ART and PrEP have been used to assess the risk of drug resistance on the individual and population level.
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
