Describes the limitations of health education and behaviour change models, in the context of the HIV pandemic. Uses UNICEF's construct of communication as a right and a means to claiming other rights; and applies this to the triple-A (assessing, analyzing, acting) model of learning-by-doing, in which communication is integral at every stage. Argues that rights-holders must take charge of the change process, deciding what kind of change is wanted, in the context of their communities and social setting
