An epidemiological population model is proposed to assess the impact of protection and /or treatment strategies applied to HIV infection. Sex-education campaigns are the available protection strategy, and drug (or association of drugs) administration is the treatment strategy considered. In this model we assumed recruitment and differential mortality rates for the homosexual population. In addition to the classical threshold contact rate related to the establishment of the disease, we obtained a threshold input rate.
