This joint programme led by UN Women with the participation of UNFPA, UN Habitat and UNODC addresses the issue of building community justice for women and girls by preventing and combating violence against women. The ultimate outcome of the programme is to reduce the vulnerability of women and girls in West Bank and Gaza to all forms of violence against women and from the threat of such violence.

The programme builds on ongoing work across the UN system in West Bank and Gaza Strip and forms a coordinated, multi-sector, long term strategy designed to produce results in preventing and combating violence against women and girls through experimentation and documentation of ‘what works’ and lessons learnt. It also draws on the pending process of harmonizing legislation and regulations with international standards related to preventing and combating violence against women.

The programme focuses on comprehensive and integrated interventions that are designed based on the National Strategy to Combat Violence against Women: 2011-2019. The interventions are targeted at different levels (the individual, the relationship between partners, the family, the community, including the physical environment, the society, local government, national government, grassroots civil society); across the three pillars of prevention, response and policy development (the intermediate outcome areas as outlined above); and with a longer-term time-frame recognizing that preventing and responding to violence against women requires sustained commitment of financial and human resources.
