Objective To establish spread and trends of human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune-deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) national model as well as to explore computer-visualised case-based pattern of HIV/AIDS education by HIV/AIDS at national levels. Methods A typical data from sub-Saharan African countries were used to design the reference mode. HIV/AIDS model based on the design concept of T21 national model was established in analysing the population, economy and society. Results The national model established and analysed revealed the trend of HIV/AIDS propagation and its corresponding impact on the population, economy and society identified over fifty years. Conclusion The HIV/AIDS national model besides illustrating the spread, trend and hazard of HIV/AIDS on the general population, it is a useful tool for health promotion and education for the entire population.
