Your Sexual Health Matters.

Abuse comes in many different forms and it can affect people who are HIV-positive in many different ways. Abusive partners can use STIs or HIV to try and control or harm their partners. Abusive partners can use their power and control to isolate and manipulate survivors who are HIV-positive through active discrimination, fear of discrimination, criminalization, societal stigma, and the absence of legal protections for people living with HIV. Common actions of an abusive partner:

  • Making derogatory remarks about a survivor's worthiness or 'cleanliness' due to their status or insinuating that they won't find love again.
  • Labeling a survivor as promiscuous or using derogatory terms because of their HIV status.
  • Isolating a survivor because they're seen as a risk to others.
  • Threatening to disclose a survivor's HIV status to their family or community, exposing them to discrimination.
  • Threatening to reveal a survivor's HIV status to their landlord, risking eviction or housing difficulties.
  • Threatening to use a survivor's HIV status against them in a custody battle.
  • Preventing a survivor from accessing necessary medical care.
  • Stealing or damaging a survivor's medication vital for their health.
  • Threatening to disclose a survivor's HIV status to an employer, risking job loss or hindering job prospects.
  • Coercing a survivor into paying for new medication by destroying their current supply.
  • Interfering with safer sex methods a survivor wishes to use.
  • Publicly sharing a survivor's HIV status online.
  • Threatening unwarranted legal action against an HIV-positive survivor, and more.
