Conflict, Crisis, and Abuse in Dharavi, Mumbai: Experiences from Six Years at a Centre for Vulnerable Women and Children
AbstractMany victims of domestic violence go to hospitals, but interaction with doctors and nurses tended to stop at treatment for injuries. Engaging with the wider issues—emotional, psychiatric, social, and legal—requires confidence, time, training, protocols, and resources, all of which are in short supply. The Centre for Vulnerable Women and Children is running in Dharavi, Mumbai. The Centre was conceived as a means to address this gap through a partnership between the Municipal Corporation and a non-government organisation (NGO).
