Growing Up Safe: Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse
Violence against children is a multifaceted problem with causes at the individual, close relationship, community, and societal levels.

Globally, it is estimated that approximately 1 billion children aged 2–17 years, experience physical, sexual, or emotional violence or neglect every year. Violence against children has lifelong impacts on the health and well-being of children, families, communities, and nations. With the life changing impact of abuse on individuals and their communities the need to address this social affliction across all cultures and societies is extremely important for our future generations.

In this session our panel of experts will be talking about preventive measures and how we need to be empathetic towards victims.
