The epidemiology of HIV infection and AIDS

  • C. D. Daykin

Abstract

The current state of knowledge on the epidemiology of HIV infection and AIDS is reviewed, with extensive references to the medical literature. The particular focus is on those aspects of the epidemiology of HIV infection which are of interest in the formulation of models for projecting the future spread of the virus and its impact in terms of numbers of cases of AIDS and deaths from AIDS.
