TAQUETTE, Stella R.; RUZANY, Maria Helena; MEIRELLES, Zilah  e  RICARDO, Isabel. Violent relationship in young people and STD/AIDS risk. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.5, pp.1437-1444. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2003000500022.

To verify whether affective relationships involving violence are associated with increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including AIDS, we conducted a survey among youth 14 to 22 years of age residing in two low-income communities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We used a qualitative methodology with focal groups and individual interviews. Violence is part of the routine among these youth in both their community and families. The following factors were associated with violence in interpersonal relations: lack of money, unemployment, drug and alcohol use, jealousy, and infidelity. The young people reported that condom use is not negotiated with violent partners, resulting in increased risk of STD/AIDS. The results indicate that violence is multi-factorial, and when present in interpersonal relationships it intervenes negatively in relation to protection against STD/AIDS.
