Abstract

A Series of combined epidemic and public health campaign models is developed that examines the effect of public health campaigns on the long-term spread of AIDS. This series of models can be useful in the differential equations classroom to demonstrate how models of increasing complexity are built and analyzed, interpreted, and further modified. It is hoped that the students will also be helped to appreciate the applicability of differential equations to questions of current interest outside the field of mathematics.
