HIV/AIDS Risk Factors and Risk Reduction


All service providers should understand the risks associated with HIV/AIDS and be able to appropriately discuss them with all clients. Rather than focusing only on certain clients, it is important that these risks are discussed with everyone. The risk of HIV/AIDS, while heightened by being in an abusive relationship, does not end when the relationship ends. Anyone having unprotected sex, sharing needles, or sharing drug preparation equipment and/or works is at an increased risk for HIV/AIDS. This handout helps outline the most common risk factors associated with HIV/AIDS, as well as best practices for risk reduction.
