Recognizing the critical role that health care providers can play in addressing intimate partner violence (IPV), this study examined the acceptability of and barriers to routine screening for IPV in health care settings in the Department of Artibonite, Haiti. Semi-structured, face-to-face in-depth interviewers were conducted in May to July 2013 among 41 health care providers and 43 female clients of reproductive health services who were recruited in six health facilities, and among 21 community members, 12 of whom were male. Interviews were conducted in Haitian Creole and transcribed for analysis using a grounded theory approach.
