iTech’s We Prevent team partnered with the Fenway Health Violence Recovery Program to talk about IPV and how providers can better support LGBTQ+ survivors of IPV. Between Dec 2019-Sept 2021, an iTech study called We Prevent enrolled 318 young sexual minority men ages 15 to 24 in romantic relationships into an online HIV prevention intervention. The intervention was designed to teach communication skills with partners about sexual health and HIV prevention. During the intervention, researchers asked participants about their personal lives and found that a large proportion of participants had experienced some form of intimate partner violence or IPV.
