The most significant change in the global response to HIV has been the rapid expansion of antiretroviral therapy (ART) using drug combinations in developing countries. Since WHO and UNAIDS launched the 3 by 5 strategy in 2003,1 the number of people on ART has grown to exceed 4 million people by the end of 2008.2 High levels of ART in many countries are now having a major impact on HIV prevalence. Because survival of individuals on ART is greatly prolonged, HIV prevalence in the population as a whole will be higher than in the absence of ART. These increased prevalence effects are often reflected in surveillance data which the UNAIDS Estimation and Projection Package (EPP) fits to the model developed by the UNAIDS Reference Group on Estimates, Modelling and Projections (hereafter, the Reference Group model).3-6 EPP has been used extensively for modelling national epidemics.7-10 The EPP model must incorporate these effects of ART on prevalence before fitting to the data. High levels of ART can ...

Tatyana Kushner, MD, MSCE, is Assistant Professor in the Division of Liver Diseases at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. She completed her medical school and internal medicine training at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, a fellowship in gastroenterology and a masters in clinical epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania, and a fellowship in transplant hepatology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Her research focuses on both epidemiologic and patient-centered outcomes in viral hepatitis, with an emerging focus in the area of womens health and pregnancy care, and the goal of developing and studying interventions to improve clinical outcomes in this patient population. She has recently established a Womens Liver Clinic at Mount Sinai in order to enhance the diagnosis and management of liver disease during pregnancy and post-delivery, particularly of hepatitis B and hepatitis C. ...
At present, the EPP can give no estimates of the uncertainty associated with model fits, nor can it estimate high and low future scenarios for the HIV epidemic based on the parameters fit. And yet, this is one of the outputs that could be of the greatest value to policymakers and programme planners in preparing for the future. Approaches to ranges reflecting the certainty around the prevalence estimates have been developed17 and these will be incorporated in the EPP in the future.. The EPP is expected to also support estimates and projections in concentrated and low level epidemics in the near future. In concentrated epidemics, HIV remains focused in higher risk populations. Individuals may only be at higher risk and hence included in such populations for short periods. For example, sex workers enter sex work for a period of time and then the majority of them return to the general female population. As currently implemented, the EPP only allows exit from populations through mortality. ...

Microorganisms are found everywhere and constitute the major part of every ecosystem in the environment. They live either freely or as parasite (sleigh and Timbury 1998).. In some cases, they live as transient contaminants in formites or hands when they constitute a major health hazards as source of community and hospital acquired infections (Pettet et al., 1999).. The increasing incidents of epidemic outbreak of certain disease depends on its rate of spread from one community to the other and has then become a major public health concern(Scott et al., Galteli et al., 2006) Although it is acceptable that the infection risk in the general community is less than that associated with patients in the hospital , the yearly increase in food poisoning cases in which households outbreak are a major factor required in the assessment 0of the probable cases and sources (Scott et al., 1982).

Research to improve understanding of African MSM. 1. The epidemiology of MSM in Africa The keynote address entitled Time to act: Responding to the HIV Pandemic Among MSM was delivered by Professor Chris Beyrer of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Systematic reviews of HIV living in low and middle-income countries, from which data are available, consistently show that MSM are at high risk of HIV compared to the local heterosexual population. Aggregate HIV prevalences among African MSM are reported to range from 8.8% in Sudan to 32.9% in Zambia. Many of these studies were performed using respondent driven or snowball sampling and therefore are not generalizable but highlight a concentrated MSM HIV epidemic in countries with more generalized heterosexual epidemics. Biologically, unprotected anal sex, particularly receptive anal sex carries a high risk of transmitting HIV (Estimated to be approx. 1.4% with each episode which is 18 times higher than for vaginal sex.). Individual ...
The distribution of cases existed significant differences among eight climate zones (F-test: 267.02, p < 0.05). The highest mean weekly incidence rate (per 100,000 population) was 0.59 in snow climate with dry winter and warm summer (Dwb). The primary (relative risk (RR): 3.61, p < 0.001) and secondary (RR: 2.45, p < 0.001) clusters were located in Dwb. The highest values of α, β and γ were 1.00, 261 and 154.38 in Dwb. The hot spots (high-high clusters) of the epidemic indices were detected in Dwb ...
For example, condom use is widely promoted as an HIV prevention measure and is effective in countries such as Thailand, where the epidemic is spread primarily through sex work. However, studies have found no evidence that condom use has played a primary role in HIV decline in generalized, primarily heterosexual epidemics, such as those in southern Africa, the authors note. This is mainly because most HIV transmission there occurs in more regular sexual relationships, in which achieving consistent condom use has proved extremely difficult.. The evidence is similarly lacking for other popular prevention approaches as well, according to the authors. Studies have shown no consistent reduction in risk for those testing HIV-negative and testing programs have produced no evidence of HIV reduction in populations. The treatment of other STIs has had discouraging results; vaccine development trials and microbicide testing have been disappointing; and abstinence is not likely to have a major impact since ...

Abstract: The effective reproduction number, R(t), is a central point in the study of infectious diseases. It establishes in an explicit way the extent of an epidemic spread process in a population. The current estimation methods for the time evolution of R(t), using incidence data, rely on the generation interval distribution, g(\tau), which is usually obtained from empirical data or already known distributions from the literature. However, there are systems, especially highly heterogeneous ones, in which there is a lack of data and an adequate methodology to obtain g(\tau). In this work, we use mathematical models to bridge this gap. We present a general methodology for obtaining an explicit expression of the reproduction numbers and the generation interval distributions provided by an arbitrary compartmental model. Additionally, we present the appropriate expressions to evaluate those reproduction numbers using incidence data. To highlight the relevance of such methodology, we apply it to the ...

Over the past few decades, numerous forecasting methods have been proposed in the field of epidemic forecasting. Such methods can be classified into different categories such as deterministic vs. probabilistic, comparative methods vs. generative methods, and so on. In some of the more popular comparative methods, researchers compare observed epidemiological data from the early stages of an outbreak with the output of proposed models to forecast the future trend and prevalence of the pandemic. A significant problem in this area is the lack of standard well-defined evaluation measures to select the best algorithm among different ones, as well as for selecting the best possible configuration for a particular algorithm. In this paper we present an evaluation framework which allows for combining different features, error measures, and ranking schema to evaluate forecasts. We describe the various epidemic features (Epi-features) included to characterize the output of forecasting methods and provide suitable

Epidemiology plays an all-important role in many areas of medicine, from discovering the relationship between tobacco smoking and lung cancer, to documenting the impact of diet, the environment, and exercise on general health, to tracking the origin and spread of new epidemics such as Swine Flu. It is truly a vital field, central to the health of society, but it is often poorly understood, largely due to misrepresentations in the media.
