Abstract: Sabiendo que la depresión, la violencia de pareja y el abuso de sustancias pueden ser factores importantes en el estado de salud, los investigadores examinaron el papel que juegan estas cuestiones en las disparidades de salud entre las mujeres latinas. Cerca de 550 mujeres participaron en el estudio, como parte de un proyecto más amplio sobre la prevención del VIH entre las mujeres latinas en el sur de la Florida. Los sujetos tenían un promedio de 38 años de edad y eran en su mayoría pobres, desempleadas y se habían graduado de la escuela secundaria. Los síntomas depresivos y una historia de violencia y abusos eran comunes. El 13% reportó haber estado ebrio o drogado en los últimos 3 meses, y aunque muy pocos alguna vez habían tenido una ITS, sólo el 15% usaba condones regularmente.///Knowing that depression, partner violence and substance abuse can be major factors in poor health status, researchers examined the role that these issues play in health disparities among Latina women.

Depressive symptoms and a history of violence and abuse were common. 13% reported having been drunk or high in the past 3 months, and while very few had ever had an STI, only 15% used condoms regularly.
