Title / Titel Using transmission networks for assessing and guiding prevention efforts in HIV
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung Integrating traditional epidemiological approaches with a transmission-network perspective is of key importance for understanding and preventing the spread of infectious diseases. HIV is a case in point for this: the wealth of sequence, clinical, and behavioral data have made such an integration feasible, and key questions in HIV prevention require a consideration of both transmission-network and traditional-epidemiological factors. We aim to apply such an integrative approach to the unique data from the Swiss HIV Cohort Study to address central issues in HIV prevention including treatment-as-prevention and comorbidities in HIV patients.
