Independent Expert responsible for the UN SG’s Study on Violence against Children
Prof. Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro
The World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse reminds us of the importance of acting now to respond to children’s plight. Preventing violence is the most effective way to protect children - a radical change is needed to ensure that this priority is fully recognized and translated into action. The different strengths of all those who work for and with children must be combined in order to ensure the sea change we all aim to promote.
