Abstract

The time duration between HIV seroconversion to AIDS known as Incubation period is very long and highly variable across groups. Several models for incubation period distribution were studied by many author. In this paper we propose new approaches to model the distribution of the incubation period of HIV/AIDS epidemic using the stages of the disease, the threshold level and cumulative invasion of the immune system. But each model has its own limitations.
