Futures Without Violence and PWN-USA Team Up to Create Resources for Survivors of Violence Living With HIV

November 22, 2016

In partnership with PWN-USA, UCSF Women's HIV Program, Christie's Place and Johns Hopkins University, Futures Without Violence has developed several new materials for survivors of violence who are living with HIV and care providers who are working in HIV testing, treatment and care facilities.

  • The Sex, Relationships and Getting Tested Safety Card supports providers who are working in HIV testing facilities in being able to have conversations with their patients about experiencing violence in their relationship might put them at greater risk for acquiring HIV and provides safety planning strategies around anonymous partner notification and information about how violence might be affecting their health.
  • The Positive Sex and Relationships: Taking Control of Your Health Safety Card provides information and support to people who are living with HIV around healthy relationships, experiences of trauma and how violence may be making it difficult to stay healthy. HIV treatment and care providers will find this card to be a useful conversation starters when talking to patients about healthy relationships and how violence can affect health.
  • The Gender Based Violence, Health and HIV: Intersections and Implications for HIV Clinicians Training Slides training curriculum is designed to support providers in HIV testing, counseling and care settings. The module helps provider to frame trauma-informed conversations about how healthy and unhealthy relationships can affect patients' health, in addition connecting patients to important services. All of these resources are available for free at www.futureswithoutviolence.org.
