The subject of violence against women living with HIV has been gaining currency within the international agenda on HIV, gender and development; however, to date it has received only limited attention in research, the policymaking process and specific interventions. In November 2010, Development Connections, the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (ICW Global) and UN Women convened the Virtual Forum on Violence against Women Living with HIV. The present background paper collects and analyzes definitions, data and practices on the subject, while exploring their strategic implications for research, advocacy and programming. The rationale for the paper was to frame the online dialogue within an informed, global perspective.
