Discusses the crucial connections between violence against women and the spread of HIV/AIDS. The links between intimate partner violence and HIV/AIDS are explained by biological as well as sociocultural and economic factors. Ways in which the two epidemics intersect are described here with the caveat that pathways, causal or temporal links between violence against women and HIV/AIDS are quite complex and not completely understood.
