Description

Risk and Resiliency: The Intersection of Domestic Violence and HIV

This 90-minute workshop will address the intersection of HIV and Intimate Partner Violence. People experiencing intimate partner violence are particularly vulnerable to HIV acquisition, and often face significant barriers to HIV prevention services as well as HIV treatment after diagnosis; conversely, people living with HIV/AIDS face increased vulnerability to abuse and violence. This workshop will address some of the unique challenges at the intersection of HIV and IPV, and will highlight promising advancements in the treatment and prevention of HIV that will provide opportunities for people experiencing abuse who are living with or vulnerable to HIV.



Training Objectives:

  • Describe the current statistics related to HIV and IPV
  • Collaboratively discuss factors that contribute to increased vulnerability to HIV for people experiencing IPV and increased vulnerability to IPV for people living with HIV/AIDS
  • Identify barriers to HIV treatment and prevention that are often faced by people living with or vulnerable to HIV who are also facing IPV
  • Detail promising studies that are currently underway to advance HIV care and prevention, that provide hope for people living with or vulnerable to HIV who are also facing IPV

Presenter:

Paul W. Foster, CPH, PrEP Program Coordinator, Center for HIV/STI Integration and Capacity, Infectious Disease Prevention and Health Services Bureau, Prevention and Health Promotion Administration, Maryland Department of Health
