Resources on the Intersection of Women, HIV and Violence

Table of Contents

There is a well-established and strong link between women, violence, and HIV. Because several ongoing efforts try to bring awareness to and address this global health problem, The Well Project pulled together a list of resources for those who wish to learn more and take action.

Below you will find links not only to scientific and policy data demonstrating the connection between violence against women and HIV, but also to survivors' personal stories and community-based fact sheets. These resources include an issues brief published by the Women's Research Initiative on HIV/AIDS, a program of The Well Project. If you wish to have a resource added to this list, please email us at info@thewellproject.org.

Hotlines/Resources for Women:

Most importantly: if you are feeling threatened right now, call 911 or the National Domestic Violence hotline in the US at 800-799-SAFE [1-800-799-7233; or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY)]. You can also search for a safe space online at Domestic Shelters (https://www.domesticshelters.org/).
