HIV researchers have long appreciated the need to understand the social and behavioral determinants of HIV-related risk behavior, but the cumulative impact of individual behaviors on population-level HIV outcomes can be subtle and counterintuitive. Mathematical models are a way to examine the potential effects of the proximate biological and behavioral determinants of HIV transmission dynamics, alone and in combination.
Mathematical models may be used to:
- Predict population-level disease outcomes from individual-level behavior
- Identify network structures that propagate infectious disease transmission
- Support clinical trial design
- Model impacts from HIV intervention
