This issue brief discusses violence against women as the cause and consequence of HIV. Several studies are cited that demonstrate the way in which HIV infected women are more likely to have experienced violence. This violence in turn compromises women’s access to a range of critical health information and services, including testing and treatment. Actions to be taken by national governments and international partners are suggested.
