Abstract

Sexual assault and HIV are coexisting public health problems. Sexual assault may increase HIV transmission risk through diverse mechanisms, such as infliction of anal, oral, and genital injuries by penile, digital, or object penetration, extragenital trauma, concurrent sexually transmitted infections, condom use, and whether the perpetrator was circumcised.
