How will the AIDS epidemic grow in Britain? How might it best be contained? This report investigates contemporary sexual behaviour in Britain in order to answer these questions. Part one of the report reviews the progress of the epidemic to date, and describes the social and political responses to it. Part two describes an investigation of sexual behaviour in present day society, a direct inquiry among 1289 men and 1241 women, from which patterns are projected towards the coming decades. Part three describes and uses a computer simulation model to predict the future incidence and prevalence of HIV-infection, of cases of AIDS and of deaths from AIDS. Alternative preventative measures are then evaluated. The final chapter outlines the more practical implications and formulates the necessary components of an effective and appropriate preventative policy.
