While on this site and doing research I often find I do not know the meaning of an Acronys. I need you to help me>

Recently I found a table about telling your story:
A victim "hides their story"
A Survivor "is nor afraid to tell their story to safe people"
A thriver "goes beyond telling their story, but are aware they have created their own healing with HP"

What does HP stand for?

Im finishing our South African site this weekend and want to include acronym guide.

PLEASE Help and add to this list. I am am sure it will help anybody new to this FORUM, I often feel that I am ignorant and that people expect you to know all the abbreviations.

Acronyms:

AIDS: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
ART: Anti- retroviral Therapy
HIV: Human Immuno-deficiency Virus
IPV: Intimate Partner Violence
MAP: Men as Partners
MSM: Men who have sex with men
PEP: Post Exposure Prophylaxis
SGBV: Sexual and Gender Based Violence
STD: Sexually Transmitted Disease
CSA: Child Sexual Abuse
RTS: Rape Trauma Syndrome
ECP: Emergency Contraceptives
OP: Outpatient
PRC: Post Rape Care
CJS: Criminal Justice System
GBV: Gender Based Violence
HCW: Health Care Worker
SV: Sexual Violence

HP, in the context of survivors usually means Higher Power. That can refer to God or any deity or, persona strength found within ourselves.

One acronym you've left off is ASA for "adult sex abuse," used to distinguish from CSA.

HP in our fkd-up child-sex-abuse context is usually expressed as "HPV"

As in Human Papaloma Virus...believed to be readily transmitted via sex with a carrier.

Boys/Men get it too (anally and via urethra)

Said to be HIGHLY adept at triggering cervical, oral and pelvic organ cancers...and penis cancer....and scrotal...and testicular...

And OMG...don't look online for images...you'll never be the same again.
