Previous studies have documented the relationship between intimate partner violence victimization and increased risk of HIV in women. It is also known that migrant women are disproportionately affected by these co-occurring problems, but few have explored why. Therefore, CHAS Fellow Leyla Ismayilova and colleagues implemented a cross-sectional study of IPV victimization and HIV risk among female migrants in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Their results suggest that HIV may spread quickly once introduced into the sexual networks of this population. The researchers also indicate a need for more rigorous research as well as programs and policies which consider migration and mobility as potentially fuel for IPV victimization and HIV risk.
