Child Protection/Health

Child protection programs focus on child abuse or harm prevention, intervention, and enforcement. They address a variety of issues including missing and exploited children, crimes against children, abused and neglected children, and children exposed to domestic or community violence. In addition to safeguarding children from threats posed by adults, many juvenile justice programs also target harm that is self imposed or harm caused by peers, such as substance abuse and bullying.
