Joint modeling of recurrent and terminal events has attracted considerable interest and extensive investigations by many authors. The assumption of low-dimensional covariates has been usually applied in the existing studies, which is however inapplicable in many practical situations. In this paper, we consider a partial sufficient dimension reduction approach for a joint model with high-dimensional covariates. Some simulations as well as three real data applications are presented to confirm and assess the performance of the proposed model and approach.
