Intimate partner violence (IPV) negatively affects the physical and mental wellbeing of victims even many years after the abuse hasended. However, it is not known whether IPV at some time in life puts older women at risk for chronic health conditions such asdementia, diabetes, and heart disease, or whether it shortens their lifespan. This analysis will explore the effect of historical IPV onrisk for death and serious illness over 15 years in older women.
