Computer Simulation Modeling to Assess HIV Prevention Program in NYC

Computer-based mathematical modeling can provide a clearer picture on how to select strategies to prevent the greatest number of HIV cases in the most economical way. Different interventions, targeting particular groups, produce widely varying numbers of new infections averted in New York City over the next 20 years. Details of the these findings can be found in our latest fact sheet.
