Violence and Women

Violence against women and girls can be a cause or a consequence of HIV. There is a growing body of evidence that illustrates the impact violence can have on transmission of HIV. Women who have experienced intimate partner violence are 50% more likely to acquire HIV and UNAIDS indicates that one third of women living with HIV have been physically assaulted.

Book review

Aimed at healthcare professionals, this book is a very timely guide. Particularly so because, due to the intimate nature of the relationships they have with their patients, healthcare professionals are in a unique position to identify the issue, empathise with their patients and refer them for support. The book aims to provide practical help to learners early in their careers.
