September 21, 2017

Interpersonal Violence (IPV) includes physical and sexual violence, stalking and psychosocial aggression. It is a serious, preventable public health problem affecting millions of Americans, and can have lifelong consequences. HIV-positive women experience IPV at double the rate of the general population and can suffer from more frequent and severe abuse. They also have four times the risk of contracting other sexually transmitted infections.

MIHS was awarded funding from the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) through the Ryan White Part D program to combat the incidence and effects of IPV. In partnership with the Ryan White Part A and B grantees, District Medical Group, Aunt Rita’s Foundation and other community partners, MIHS will create a curriculum and educational videos pertaining to the prevention of and help for those who experience IPV at the McDowell Healthcare Center.

The English and Spanish videos will be available on the MIHS website, accessible by providers, social media, and circulated to AIDS Service Organizations. Additionally, IPV Advocates from the MIHS Mariposa – Wings to Safety Domestic Violence Program will be available on-site at the McDowell Healthcare Center to help those impacted by IPV.
