Title:  Modeling HIV Transmission and Predicting the Impact of HIV Prevention Interventions

Abstract:  HIV remains a public health problem worldwide, with 36.7 million people currently living with HIV and 2.1 million becoming newly infected each year. Antiretroviral therapy for HIV-infected people is highly effective in preventing onward transmission at the individual level, but optimal translation of this prevention benefit to population-level reductions in HIV incidence has not been achieved. In this seminar, I will present a series of ODE models of HIV transmission in Malawi and North Carolina, each of which aims to inform public health interventions for maximizing HIV prevention in these settings.
