We envision a world where all women live free from violence.

Founded in 1985, the Clinic has helped more than 70,000 women to live free from violence.

In addition to the direct services provided, the Clinic takes a multi-faceted approach to the eradication of violence against women through its public education, training, community development and its national and international policy and advocacy work.
