Abstract

Since its inception in the mid-1980s, social network analysis has changed the scene of sexually transmitted infection (STI) research in fundamental ways and brought about a paradigm shift. This article surveys the roles of sexual, social, and online networks in STI dynamics. Some challenges for future research are also considered.
