Intimate partner violence (IPV) can affect anyone, but people who are already marginalized and underserved are particularly at risk. These barriers can also prevent people in abusive relationships from accessing crucial services. Understanding how social determinants of health, such as gender, race, location, and socioeconomic position, affect a patient's likelihood of experiencing IPV can help providers better evaluate and engage their patients who may be impacted.
