Efforts to reduce transmission of HIV have traditionally focused on interventions designed to change the behavior of individuals. Many believe, however, that changing the social, political, and economic environment in which people live is an essential component of individual behavior change. One example of this approach to HIV prevention can be found in the numerous groups working to secure the right of women to own and control property. In many developing countries, a lack of property and inheritance rights places women in a position of economic dependence on male relatives and may increase susceptibility of women to HIV.
