Table 1 A PICOS framework for determination of the eligibility of the review question

From: Evidence of perpetration of intimate partner violence among HIV-positive couples: a systematic scoping review protocol

Criteria Determinants
Population The population of the study will be individuals in intimate relationship and living with HIV
Interventions Intimate partner violence
Comparisons None
Outcomes Promote positive relationship among HIV couples, prevent the spread of HIV and improve quality of life (general well-being and health)
Study settings Low- and middle-income countries are the focus. Owing to the scarcity of literature on intimate partner violence, we proposed not to limit the scope of this review by study setting.
The rationale for this is to have a good number of publications globally for comparison
