论文摘要

Female HIV rates are signifcantly higher in common law sub–Saharan African countries compared to civil law ones. This paper explains the relationship by focusing on differences in female property rights under the two codes of law. In sub-Saharan Africa, common law is associated with weaker female marital property laws. Exploiting the fact that some ethnic groups in sub-Saharan Africa cross country borders with different legal systems, we are able to includ eethnicity fixed effects into a regression discontinuity approach. This allows us to control for alarge set of cultural, geographical, and environmental factors that could be confounding the estimates. The results of this paper are consistent with gender inequality.
