March 10th: Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

In honor of Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, we are sharing fascinating research published by Futures Without Violence about the undeniable relationship between violence against women and HIV/AIDS. In a fact sheet updated in 2013, Futures Without Violence presents detailed evidence and statistics that show not only does violence against women undermine successful HIV risk reduction at the community level, but also violence compromises successful partner notification and that the groups of people identified as higher risk for HIV infection are also people who are more likely to suffer from abuse. As concerned community members, educators, advocates, and caring people, we encourage you to share this information and to #StartTheConvo with someone you know. Hope for the future of an HIV/AIDS-free world lies in large part with the power of intervention programs, cross-training & education, and working to be a better informed society.  FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_1FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_2FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_3FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_4FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_5FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_6FWV - Violence Against Women and HIV AIDS Factsheet pg1_Page_7
