The brief is based on the experience and the success of a hospital based Crisis Centres for women facing domestic violence in Mumbai - Dilaasa. It is a joint initiative of the MCGM and CEHAT, established to sensitise Health care providers and train them to understand domestic violence as a health issue. Besides training of Health care providers, the key function of Dilaasa is provision of psycho social support to women facing domestic violence. It has also received recognition from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) as one of the best practices in Gender Mainstreaming. It is hoped that this document will inspire the promotion, replication and implementation of the Dilaasa model – a strategy that has been found to work. URL:[].
