The Intersection Between HIV/AIDS and Domestic Violence in Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Women The purpose of this White Paper is to provide a brief introduction to the intersection of HIV/AIDS and domestic violence in the AA and NHPI community through a reproductive justice framework. A reproductive justice analysis of this intersection reveals that traditional HIV interventions fail to account for the societal and structural barriers women face, the effect that social constructs such as gender, patriarchy and culture have on women’s health, and the effect of violence on women’s reproductive health.  In addition, this analysis is used to identify specific challenges AA and NHPI women face.
