Intimate Partner Violence
Intimate partner violence (IPV) [539 KB, 2 Pages, 508] is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans.

This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.
CDC’s goal is to stop IPV before it begins.
