Abstract

Hispanic women in the United States are disproportionately affected by HIV infection. Substance abuse and intimate partner violence (IPV) are conditions that have been associated with risk for HIV in the general population. However, few studies have explored the intersection of these three conditions within one integrated framework. The purpose of this exploratory study was to describe the relationships between HIV risks, substance abuse, and IPV among Hispanic community-dwelling women. A total of 82 structured interviews were conducted with Hispanic women between the ages of 18 and 60. Data regarding the participant's and her partner's histories of sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse, risky sexual behaviors, and IPV were collected. Relationships between the participant's history of sexually transmitted infections, her partner's substance abuse, risky sexual behaviors, and IPV were explored. Results from this study support the importance of targeting HIV, substance abuse, and IPV prevention among Hispanics within one integrated framework.
