An estimated 50 million women in Asia are at risk of acquiring HIV infection from their husband or long-time partner, according to a report released last month by the Joint United Nationals Programme on HIV/AIDS, or UNAIDS.
The report, HIV Transmission in Intimate Partner Relationships in Asia, is available online at http://data.unaids.org/pub/Report/2009/intimate_partners_report_en.pdf.
