A steady-state model for the spread of HIV among drug users

Gani, Joseph; Racherla, Deepti


This paper proposes a new approach to model the spread of HIV/AIDS among intravenous drug users (IVDUs). The focus is on a group of n IVDUs within which infective contacts occur, and which evolves in discrete time, subject to group splitting, immigration, and emigration. We are interested in finding the probability distribution of the ultimate number Y(n) of HIV infectives produced by the group as time tends to infinity, and obtain a stochastic recursive equation for it. Although, on the...[Show more]
