  • We propose and study a model for sexually transmitted infections on uncorrelated networks, where both differential susceptibility and infectivity are considered. We first establish the spreading threshold, which exists even in the infinite networks. Moreover, it is possible to have backward bifurcation. Then for bounded hard-cutoff networks, the stability of the disease-free equilibrium and the permanence of infection are analyzed. Finally, the effects of two immunization strategies are compared. It turns out that, generally, the targeted immunization is better than the proportional immunization.
