WEP is a branch of the Gaza Community Mental Health Project. WEP supports women victims of violence and works towards prevention of domestic violence. OPSI evaluated WEP in 2004 and together with the WEP team developed a strategy to increase the effectiveness of the project. OPSI then supported the implementation of the necessary changes.
