Abstract—BACKGROUND: AIDS is a significant threat to global human health and raises many concerns with regards to social development. The prevention and control of the spread of this incurable disease is of utmost urgency with long-term efforts required to make it a reality. Our country is now at a pivotal time point in the fight against AIDS. Due to the increasing urgency in AIDS prevention, control, and treatment, we need to reexamine our approaches to tackling this disease from a scientific perspective. MOTIVATION: Designing and developing a powerful and user-friendly GIS which is data-rich and has a reasonable structure. This GIS should allow easy sharing of data while maintaining high data security in addition to being a highly scalable system that has the capability of monitoring and preventing AIDS transmission. RESULTS: The system is able to show the spread of AIDS and other aspects of the overall process by charts, virtual environments, and output files. Furthermore, the integration of ABM and GIS allows the system to predict future trends of the AIDS epidemic. Thus disease control departments can set different predictive and decision-making measures to control the impact of the AIDS epidemic spread more effectively.
