Project description

This project uses both statistical analyses and mathematical modelling to model HIV transmission and HIV treatment interventions in complex sexual networks. It is a collaborative effort of researchers from ICRH and the Statistics Research Unit in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, both at Ghent University, CenStat at Hasselt University and SACEMA at Stellenbosch University.
