The research is a secondary data analysis of focus group responses from a small number of HIV positive women in Kenya. The study examined the women's perceptions of Gender Based Violence (GBV). The qualitative data was analyzed for themes, coded, then examined using one-way analysis of variance. There were no statistically significant differences between categories describing women's perceptions of gender violence and abuse, (p= 0.904). Sexual violence was the most frequent response, followed by emotional violence. It is important to understand how women perceive GBV, when developing multi-sectoral approaches to address gender violence.
