Intimate partner violence (IPV)

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem. The term "intimate partner violence" describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.
