This evaluation was conducted by Helena Manrique and Kelsey Vaughan on behalf of the Vienna Evaluation Unit.

OCBA commenced a new mental health intervention in the city of Buenaventura in February 2015 with the aim to support victims of violence. The project was set up to demonstrate an innovative approach with two principle elements: a) a focus on a mass media campaign as the main means of communication, and b) a provision of therapeutic sessions on the phone. This mid-term evaluation was commissioned to assess appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of this intervention after the first 14 months for future adjustments in the project but also for a transfer of lessons to other similar situations, if relevant.
