Partner violence among methamphetamine-using women at risk for HIV (English)
Recorded May 20, 2013 by Jamila Stockton, Ph.D., M.P.H.
The primary goal of this study was to examine the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse by different types of perpetrators, including intimate partners, in an understudied population – HIV-negative, heterosexual, female methamphetamine users in San Diego, CA. The secondary goal was to identify sexual and drug-related HIV risk factors that were independently associated with intimate partner violence. Data for this study came from baseline interviews of women who participated in an HIV behavioral intervention trial designed to reduce high-risk sexual practices, methamphetamine use, and depressive symptoms. Identification of the prevalence and associated HIV risk factors of intimate partner violence in this population is critical to future research, programs and intervention development.
