Gender Violence and HIV

In 2012, President Obama created an initiative to work on addressing the link between HIV and domestic violence. This year, he reauthorized that group and laid out the new steps to reduce new infections. They included: Making it easier for federal agencies to share their data; the importance of expanding outreach to boys and men on preventing violence; and reaching out to women better to reduce their risk of HIV transmission.
