Isn’t there a way out?

No introduction,no conclusion..just a few words”Please stop domestic violence.”

 

Women in India Abused by Husbands at Far Greater Risk for HIV Infection

“In a new study, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) have found that married Indian women who experienced physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their husbands were approximately four times more likely to become infected with HIV than married women who were not abused. This first large-scale, national study to examine the relationship between intimate partner violence (IPV) against wives and clinically verified HIV infection appears in the Aug. 13 issue of JAMA.”

The authors found that more than 95 percent of HIV-positive married Indian women report being monogamous, confirming earlier studies suggesting that the most likely source of HIV infection among Indian women is husbands’ extramarital risk behavior, including unprotected extramarital sex and sex with commercial sex workers.”

 

 

The final part of the article say it all..

 

“He added that feminization of HIV epidemics (that is, infections among women rising faster than among men) in both the United States and Africa are also considered, at least in part, to stem from women’s inability to shield themselves from unprotected sex based on the controlling and abusive behavior of male partners.”

Isn’t there a way out?

 

 

P.S:

  • India has the world’s third-largest number of people infected with HIV at 2.47 million cases
  • Islam hold best law concerning such **** men,stoning them to death.Nothing more,nothing less.

    But the last sentence highly regretable….

    No religion preaches for women abuse..Please dont mix religion here…

  1. Be faithful, stick to one partner… Use Condom…have protected sex, be well informed and educated about HIV.
