Abstract

It is difficult to develop infectious disease interventions (such as for HIV) for overlapping high-risk populations, such as people who inject drugs, men who have sex with men and female sex workers, where there are multiple transmission routes. Recent advances in dynamic modelling of co-infection epidemics could disentangle the contributions of different risk groups and behaviours to help develop more efficient and effective prevention interventions.
