Sexually Transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, spread via the dynamic network of sexual partnerships that are embedded within the social structure of populations. This talk will discuss the analysis of patterns of sexual behaviour and how they determine the incidence of the different sexually transmitted infections. Additionally, it will explore the underlying influences which generate the proximate risks for the spread of the infections. This lecture will show how through mathematical models describing STI transmission dynamics we can explore how the biological properties of the infections interact with the behavioural risks to determine the patterns of infections. We can then explore the potential impact of behavioural, biomedical and structural intervention to control the spread of infections.

Part of the LIMS (Lighthill Institute of Mathematical Science) Evening Lecture Series.
