Diseases such as HIV, hepatitis C virus, and influenza kill many Americans each year. While the medical community is involved in immediate treatment, there are contributions that can be made by the complex systems and mathematical modeling community. I will review modeling work involving ordinary differential equations that has uncovered important features of each of these diseases and which has had an influence on the medical and biological community.
