OBJECTIVE: To analyze the therapeutic adherence among participants in the retraining program operated by the Ministry of Health of Mexico, in eight states in 2010.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a cross-sectional and descriptive study that assesses therapeutic adherence in a retraining intervention program for male perpetrators and female victims of intimate partner violence. The intervention was coordinated by a team of previously trained professionals. The selection of participants was made by means of a specific screening test. Overall performance for both groups was analyzed, and based on the attendance they were classified in low adhesion (1-12) medium to high (13 and>). To determine the possibility of adhesion, Student's t tests, a bivariate analysis, and a logistic regression model were performed for each program.

RESULTS: 5 539 screenings were applied, of which 88.3% (n = 4 891) were positive. 85% agreed to participate (n = 4 151), but only 75% of potential participants attended at least one session (n = 3 022). 78.5% attended between 1-12 sessions. In the women's program, significant differences in marital status, religion and age groups (p<0.05) were found. In the program for men, significant differences in religion and age groups (p<0.05) were found.

CONCLUSIONS: In the Mexican context there are few studies that assess adherence to programs of care and retraining for partner violence. This study is a first approach that opens the possibility to enhance the design and evaluation of such interventions, which are crucial to dismantle violence against women.
