Refugee women may experience multiple forms of victimization. The hypotheses underlying the present analyses were that experiences of victimization during conflict and intimate partner violence (IPV) would be associated with heightened odds of suicide ideation among refugee women living in 3 camps along the Thai–Burma border. Descriptive statistics were generated to describe the prevalence of conflict victimization, past-year IPV victimization, past-month suicide ideation, and covariates among partnered women with complete data (N = 848) from a cross-sectional survey conducted in early 2008. Logistic generalized estimating equations were used to assess the crude and adjusted relationships between variables. The mean age of women was 32.12 years, 91.0% were married, and 78.8% were of Karen ethnicity. Overall, 7.4% of women reported past-month suicide ideation. Of those women who did not experience any victimization or conflict victimization only, 5.1% and 5.2% reported suicide ideation, respectively. By contrast 26.7% of women who experienced only IPV victimization reported suicide ideation, and 50.0% of women who experienced both forms of victimization reported suicide ideation. Understanding each form of violence victimization and their relationships to suicide ideation may be important for targeting psychosocial services and violence prevention programs within protracted refugee settings.

標題:衝突受害和近期親密伴侶暴力與泰緬邊境女難民中最近一月自殺念頭的聯繫。

撮要:女難民可能經歷多重侵害。本分析假設是:在泰緬邊境三個難民營的女難民中,衝突中受害和親密伴侶暴力經歷(IPV)都與自殺念頭的增加有所關連。從2008年初的一項橫切面調查中,有完整數據的已有伴侶的婦女(N=848) ,敍事統計學描述有關:衝突受害,過去一年IPV受害,過去一月自殺念頭及協變量的流行率。物流概括評估方程式會評估變量的粗略和調整後的關係。婦女的平均年齡為32.12年,91.0%已婚,和78.8%為克倫族人;有7.4%婦女在過去一個月有自殺念頭。在未有經歷侵害或只有衝突侵害的婦女中,分別5.1%及5.2%報告自殺念頭。但只有IPV受害的婦女中,有26.7%報告自殺念頭;而有IPV及衝突受害的婦女中,則有50%報告自殺念頭。對不同種類暴力受害及其自殺念頭關係的了解可有助在持續難民境況中集中社會心理服務和防止暴力計劃的推行。
