  1. Growth models and the HIV epidemic in Finland.

    Article - En anglais

    Today, we know a lot about HIV and AIDS, yet too little to be able to stop the pandemic by a vaccination or by medication.

    Until that day is at hand, the only means of controlling the pandemic is by information-information about the diffusion of the virus, about risk behaviour, about safe sex, and about social responsibility.

    Educating people must be based on concise clinical experience, an up-to-date picture of the epidemiological situation, and reliable forecasts about the future course of the epidemic.

    Producing reliable forecasts about the HIV epidemic has proved to be a more complicated task than expected.

    The proven, reliable, and in most cases very useful epidemiological models have been far from successful when applied to the HIV epidemic.
