Abstract

A model of the transmission of the HIV virus that takes demographic change into account is derived and analyzed. Thresholds for the persistence of the disease in increasing or decreasing populations are derived, and the global behavior of the solutions is obtained. Two diverse notions of disease persistence are shown to exist in populations that are undergoing demographic change. The effects of the disease on the population demographics are analyzed and discussed.
