Figure 2

The relationship between R0, male circumcision (MC), and sex-specific equilibrium HIV prevalence, under a random mixing assumption, assuming different levels of heterogeneity of sexual behaviour (rates of partner change). The distribution of male and female rates of partner change (x) are assumed to be Nm(x) ~Gamma(x, pm, αm) and Nf(x) ~Gamma(x, pf, αf) respectively. Bottom panel: homogeneous rates of partner change; middle panel: moderate heterogeneity in rates of partner change with parameters pm = 1 & pf = 0.5; top panel: high heterogeneity in rates of partner change with parameters pm = 0.5 & pf = 0.25. Continuous arrows indicate the approximate position of "Botswana" and the dotted arrow indicates the approximate position of "Nyanza".
