Exploring the Relationship between Domestic Violence and Chronic Health Conditions

General Material

This recent survey found that 70 percent of adult American women over the age of 21 have a chronic health condition. That number rises to 81 percent among women who have experienced any form of domestic violence. This is especially serious given that 44 percent of women in the survey said they experienced a form of domestic violence.
