Dynamics of HIV/AIDS in Core Groups in the Presence of a Transient Population

We investigate the role of a transient population of male individuals who interact with a core group of prostitutes in the dynamics of a sexually transmitted disease. We use a stochastic model to follow the evolution of the individuals of each population, in terms of the disease. The analysis is concentrated in the equilibrium of the process. We adapt this model to a city on the U.S.-Mexico border, where some of the parameters have already been estimated. In this way, we seek to provide a method of evaluating the effect of U.S. border policy in the transmission of diseases to the U.S.
