Get us to the finish line of completing a 90-bed hospital for Government of Karnataka

Swasti is setting up a 90 bed modular hospital within the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases, which will function as part of the existing Institute. This facility will be used for care provision for COVID in the coming year and in future will provide care for people who come to this facility; it is right next to 2 other Govt. hospitals (NIMHANS and Sanjay Gandhi Trauma Centre)
Efforts to prevent violence against women and girls are essential, now more than ever. COVID-19 lockdowns and associated restrictions have led to an increase in reports of domestic violence as many women have been forced to spend signficant time in close proximity to their abusers. Community interventions and mobilisation activities have signficant potential to prevent violence against women and girls. This research article provides a theory of change for such activities, and includes the causal pathways from inputs to impact. This resource is relevant for any individual or organisation working to combat domestic violence in communities. Authored by Nayreen Daruwalla et al. Published by Wellcome Open Research.
