This information sheet discusses the relationship between intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV in women. It uses data from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey to show the number of women who have experienced IPV, explains the links between IPV and HIV, provides studies which suggest that IPV can be a risk factor and a consequence of HIV as well as studies of women with a history of abuse. The information sheet describes what CDC is doing to address these problems, by focusing on three areas: understanding the problems, identifying effective interventions, and ensuring that states and communities can implement the prevention approaches. Examples of CDC’s work are provided.
