Description: 

AIDS Alliance invites you to participate in a free webinar focusing on the impact that gender-based violence has on women and HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs. Join us as we raise awareness of emotional and physical violence against women and examine the intersection of violence and HIV.
Stigma plays a role in the lives of women affected by violence and HIV, but it is their intersection that is often overlooked. The risk of HIV infection among women who have experienced violence is up to three times greater than for women who have not been abused. Whether you are working with HIV-positive clients or victims of violence, this webinar will examine their intersection and address how providers can better serve and support these women.
