Violent or forced sex often causes tears or lacerations for women that significantly increase the likelihood of HIV transmission, while forced sex also renders women unable to negotiate safer conditions, leaving the vulnerable to transmission of the disease. An HIV positive status, known or perceived, can also increase a woman or girl's risk of violence leaving her open to angry abuse by a partner and others, and rejection by family and friends.
