The high rates of HIV infection in women have brought into sharp focus the problem of violence against women. This information bulletin presents evidence on how intimate partner violence increases girls' and women's risk of HIV infection and undermines AIDS control efforts. It also points out opportunities and multi-sectoral approaches to address intimate partner violence in HIV/AIDS programming.
