An Object Oriented Approach to Model Reusability
Abstract: 
Sexual contact networks for disease transmission have been used extensively with HIV and provide valuable insight into the way the disease spreads through a population. These computationally intensive models often suffer from lack of reusability which makes them expensive to create and use. We take an innovated approach to build an HIV transmission model designed for expansion and reusability, and add additional functionality for model realism.
