This is a review of publications addressing aspects of the intersection between gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV. The literature review is organised into eight sub-sections: 1. Exploring the Linkages: General and Theoretical Examinations of the Intersection of GBV and HIV; 2. Interrogating and interpreting the associated risks of HIV/AIDS and GBV; 3. The role of men; 4. GBV and HIV testing and disclosure; 5. GBV as a risk factor for HIV; 6. HIV as a risk factor for GBV; 7. The increased susceptibility of sub-populations to the linked risks of HIV/AIDS and GBV; 8. Effective approaches for addressing the joint risk factors of GBV and HIV/AIDS. It is argued that there is a great need for more publications on grassroots work on these issues.
