Increased understanding about the relative contribution of genito-anal injury to HIV transmission may improve epidemic model estimates of the distribution of risk among and across different subpopulations. Better understanding about the distribution of HIV among subpopulations that are at highest risk of sexual violence can also improve the design and prioritization of combination prevention interventions that are most likely to reduce the risk of sexual violence and its potential contribution to HIV transmission. The effective incorporation of physiological and social variables into epidemic modelling will likely require new research approaches that can help communicate the level of risk associated with different types of 'heterosexual' transmission. Reference models that reflect the potential impact of sexual violence and genital injury can help direct attention toward key variables and uncertainties. For further research that clarifies these relationships will require multidisciplinary collaboration among groups with expertize in epidemiology, social science, public health, and clinical and basic science.
