AIDS Consortium factsheet on violence against women and HIV

The UK Consortium on AIDS has put together a factsheet on ‘the dual epidemic’ of violence against women (VAW) and HIV. The factsheet outlines how violence against women and girls increases vulnerability to HIV and explains some reasons why women living with HIV face violence. It was developed with the input of the Consortium’s Gender Thematic Group and provides examples of current interventions that address the link between VAW and HIV. 

The factsheet references a recent report co-authored by the Gender Violence and Health Centre at LSHTM, which showed that one in three women worldwide will experience violence in their lifetime.
