Project Summary: 

The Dilaasa crisis intervention center is a health sector response model to violence against women and children that is being scaled up in 11 public hospitals in Mumbai, India. This scaling up provides a unique opportunity to be able to generate much-needed evidence.

The Development Marketplace Award will enable the researchers to understand the factors that influence scaling up an intervention and identify strategies needed for successful scale up. This will generate evidence that will contribute towards ensuring that successful interventions do not remain restricted to limited settings but can contribute towards increasing access of care and services to more women and children.
