Violence against women is a major public health and health workers are often the first point of contact for survivors.
In 2013, WHO released the first global guidelines for healthcare providers to respond to VAW. However, there is little evidence on how to implement these guidelines in low and middle income countries. Building on the several decades of work by the Centre for Health and Enquiry into Allied Themes [CEHAT], on strengthening health response to VAW, an implementation study was undertaken in collaboration with WHO. The video describes the implementation of guidelines by using systems approach in two tertiary hospitals of Maharashtra.
