Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a prevalent health burden in the United States and is a risk factor for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) transmission. Despite the association between IPV and HIV risk, IPV is often omitted from HIV prevention research and interventions. This review analyzes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's best-evidence HIV risk reduction interventions and their incorporation of IPV assessment, education and evaluation.
Design and Sample
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's best-evidence HIV risk reduction interventions (n = 44) were reviewed for inclusion of IPV content.
Of the 44 best evidence interventions, 5 addressed IPV. These 5 interventions were further examined for method, measurement and uniformity.
Justification for IPV integration in HIV risk reduction programs is explored and supported by evidence-based research and practice.
