Trauma Center

by Laura Whitehorn

50% of people living with HIV have suffered trauma or violence in their lives.

HIV-positive American women are 2X as likely as their negative peers to have suffered from domestic violence.

If you are a survivor of violence or trauma—or are currently experiencing either one—know that seeking support for your physical and emotional well-being can help you better fight HIV too. Your health care provider can offer support services and advice.

The National Domestic Abuse Hotline also offers help at 800.799.7233 (SAFE) and thehotline.org.
