Abstract

Mathematical models have long provided basic insights in the theoretical assessment of HIV/AIDS intervention strategies. This chapter gives a global history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and various intervention strategies in place. Mathematical modelling of epidemics, its history and role in controlling infectious diseases are discussed. An in-depth literature review on the mathematical modelling and theoretical assessment of HIV/AIDS intervention strategies including the epidemiologic and demographic effects are presented.
