Politico Magazine: "A New Approach to Domestic Violence"

There’s a quiet movement underway to have doctors and other health care providers take the lead in spotting domestic abuse and — hopefully — intervening before it gets worse.

“For me, the work that I have been doing, nearly for the past decade or so, has really shined a light on all of the holes in which we’ve fallen, woefully short, in understanding this issue and the responsibility of the health care system and medicine in general to address it," Dr. Anita Ravi.

What We Do

Direct Services

Gender-based violence survivors and their children receive quality, trauma-informed healthcare at no cost, through our affiliated medical practice, PurpLE Family Health. Our holistic and integrated model addresses survivors' mental, physical, and financial health.


Our direct service work generates scalable, survivor-informed research, on healthcare delivery best practices, long-term health outcomes, trauma-informed employment, and financial health programming.

Dissemination of Key Insights and Best Practices

We deliver customized trainings, technical assistance, and expert consultation to health systems, direct service providers, policymakers and other stakeholders.
