Estimating HIV incidence using dates of both HIV and AIDS diagnoses
Knowledge of HIV incidence is important to formulate sensible strategies aimed at controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Back-projection is one of the methods for reconstructing the HIV incidence curve from AIDS incidence data. However, because of the low risk of developing AIDS during the first few years after infection, precise estimates of HIV incidence for the recent past are unlikely if we use AIDS incidence data only. As a result there have been recent attempts to use, not only the date of...[Show more]
