Alianza is responding to the needs of the population in Gaza and the West Bank through interventions focused on a multi-sectorial response to Gender Based Violence (GBV), which involves the provision of sexual and reproductive health services, psychosocial support, legal aid and monitored referral. The GBV strategy intervention additionally combines strong components on advocacy and communication on women´s rights, particularly the right to live free of violence, as well as awareness, empowerment and capacity building actions. This comprehensive intervention is currently being implemented through various projects located in the Gaza Strip and in the West Bank funded by OCHA, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation and other Spanish donors.
The GBV Coordinator will ensure a close and accurate technical and financial coordination of the interventions assigned and will contribute to strength the country strategy of Alianza within the local partners and the key stakeholders.
The interventions are framed as a coordinated contribution to the Strategic Response Plan of the Protection Cluster, as part of the Humanitarian Project Cycle (HPC) and aligned with the 2018 HRP. They respond to the identified outputs of the Response Plan, based on a joint need assessment, where GBV was identified as a priority protection issue, both in the West Bank (Area C) and in the Gaza Strip. Alianza is strongly engaged with the works of the cluster, actively participating and advising on key humanitarian topics.
It is expected that the projects will strengthen the existing GBV prevention and multi-sectorial response and to approach the GBV services to the population.
