Flashcards in STIs Public Health Deck (7)
What are the three variables that determine disease reproductive rate
likelihood of transmission per partnership
duration of infection
rate of partner change
What is the equation for reproductive rate
Ro = BcD (x), where x = proportion susceptible
for x, at time = 0, x = 100%
What is "core group"
a physiological concept based on behaviour. It's not an actual population
T/F Concurrency partners will more likely be passing diseases
What is assortative mixing?
core group mixing with core group. Highest risk of disease transmission
What is the danger of introducing any STI campaigns
It is only targeting non-core group, leading to assortative mixing in the core group
