Sexual Violence in Adulthood: Connections to Women's Health

My colleague at the UNC School of Public Health, Dr. Sandy Martin, and I recently developed a research summary article for VAWAnet about the connections between sexual violence in adulthood and women's reproductive health, as well as the connections between sexual violence and high-risk health behaviors.

Sandy and I based this summary on the best available research published to-date. Advocates may find this summary helpful for their work with sexual violence survivors, program development, and/or grant writing.

You can download the entire summary either as a pdf or you can view it as a web page in html. A very brief summary of the article can also be found here.

I welcome comments or questions about this brief research summary.
