This Literature Review looks at the linkages between HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence by setting out an initial conceptual and methodological base. It provides explanations for the incidence and the contexts of gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS by listing indicators and predictors, and by outlining psychosocial, behavioural and contextual factors. Human rights considerations provide the framework for the suggested transformative interventions. Related reviews include a review of organizations working in the field of gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS as well as a full, bibliographic review.
