This article presents outline accounts of some social and economic features of the HIV/AIDS epidemics in five countries: the United Kingdom, Botswana, Uganda, India and Ukraine. It suggests that: (a) certain key features of society and economy are major determinants of the degree to which epidemics become generalised to whole populations; (b) these features can be conceptualised in ways that will assist in more effective targeting of preventive interventions and measures to confront the medium- and long-term impacts of raised morbidity and mortality associated with the occurrence of generalised HIV/AIDS epidemics.
