The Women and Children's Crisis Center and Protection Unit (WCCCPU), together with a government hospital, developed a project to provide medical, surgical, health and psychological services to women survivors and their dependents in a gender-friendly and violence-free environment. This manual was developed as a blueprint for the project and can be used by others as a guide in setting up similar services. The introduction gives the project's history, a theoretical framework for violence against women and children, and other general details on the project. This is followed by a list of steps necessary for setting up a hospital-based crisis centre. The third part presents the major components of a hospital-based crisis centre: 1. Medical and psycho-social services; 2. Support structures, e.g. medical support structures, personnel for WCCCPU, infrastructure, as well as government and NGO NGO
