AB - We present a model for describing the spread of an infectious disease with public
screening measures to control the spread. We want to address the problem of determining an
optimal screening strategy for a disease characterized by appreciable duration of the
infectiveness period and by variability of the transmission risk. The specific disease we
have in mind is the HIV infection. However the model will apply to a disease for which
class-age structure is significant and should not be disregarded.
