This study in South Africa with young women, ages 18-30, looked at the relationship between emotional intimate partner violence (IPV) and economic IPV. Researchers found that both forms of IPV were common. Women who reported emotional IPV were less likely to report condom use at last sex, and those reporting past year economic IPV were more likely to report transactional sex with a main partner, or casual partner. The findings suggest a complicated but significant relationship between IPV and risk factors for HIV.
