This concluding chapter evaluates the epidemiologic evidence for time-varying HIV infectivity for HIV prevention programs. It begins by defining infectivity and outlining key concepts from simple models for transmission probabilities. Next, it reviews the application of transmission models to epidemiologic studies of transmission and introduces a framework for assessing the evidence for variation in infectivity. Finally, the chapter analyzes the results from several studies of heterosexual transmission and discusses the results and implications.

Keywords:   HIV infectivity, HIV prevention programs, infectivity, transmission, heterosexual transmission
