Ending violence against children

News Hour:

WHO and partners have launched seven strategies to prevent violence against children and enhance victim services.

The set of approaches launched in July, called INSPIRE, have all been tested and shown to be effective in different countries.

Each letter of INSPIRE corresponds to a strategy, with I for implementation and enforcement of laws; N for norms and values; S for safe environments; P for parent and caregiver support; I for income and economic strengthening; R for response and support services; and E for Education and life skills.


By bringing these seven approaches together in a package, WHO hopes that countries will adopt these to reduce violence against children.

Over the last year up to one billion children experienced physical, sexual or psychological violence, according to a recent study published in Pediatrics.

Homicide is among the top five causes of death for adolescents. One in four children suffer physical abuse, and nearly one in five girls is sexually abused at least once in their lives.
