We examine sexual violence and reproductive health outcomes among sexually experienced youth in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, using the Priorities for Local AIDS Control methodology to identify participants in locations where sexual partnerships are formed. Our findings indicated that sexual violence is common and is significantly associated with condom use, pregnancy experience, and recent sexually transmitted infection symptoms.
