Every year over 1.5 billion children worldwide are affected by some form of violence. However, less than 1% of financial and human resources are dedicated to this issue. Violence against children takes many forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, deprivation, malnourishment, homelessness, child marriages, genital mutilation, child prostitution, sex trafficking, children of war and forced migration and child labor.
Child Abuse and Neglect is 100% preventable. ISPCAN is committed to eradicating violence against children worldwide by increasing public awareness of all forms of violence against children, developing activities to prevent such violence, and promoting the rights of children in all regions of the world. The core of ISPCAN's work focuses on knowledge and skills building in the field of child abuse, neglect and exploitation across all disciplines to work together to improve outcomes for children.
Child abuse, neglect and other forms of violence have a lifelong impact on children's physical, emotional and social development. Beyond the harm caused to children, abuse undermine families and communities due to the long term negative consequences on physical and mental health, education, employment, and the economic, civic and social order. We must protect our most precious resource - our children. Impact the individual child and you effect: *Family *Community *Culture *Governments *The World
