Intimate Partner Violence and HIV Infection Among Married Indian Women. Silverman JG, Decker MR, Saggurti N, Balaiah D and Raj A. (2008)

immage

Married Indian women who experience physical and sexual violence from husbands face a significantly increased risk of HIV infection as compared with women who are not thus abused, and this increased prevalence of infection is not affected by major risk behaviors within their control. Findings of the present study, based on both the large population-based sample and the use of standard diagnostic testing for HIV infection, should serve to confirm the nature of this relationship and move public health policy-makers and practitioners to increase recognition of IPV as a critically important target in the global fight against HIV/AIDS.

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)

National Report on Violence and Health Mongolia. WHO (2007)

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)

Despite the numerous activities being carried out by the Health Ministry of Mongolia with the assistance of WHO, the National Traumatology and Orthopedic Teaching Hospital (NTOTH) and many other international institutions, it is clear that the statistics of violence, traffic and household injury show a trend to growth rather than decline. If no efficient and timely measures are undertaken, violence and injury ranking today as the third leading cause of mortality, may jump to the second position within the next year or two at most.
