We are excited to invite you to the launch of the Regional Status Report 2020: Preventing and responding to violence against children in the Americas which offers an overview of efforts to prevent and respond to violence against children in the Region of the Americas.
The event will be held on Monday, 23 November 2020, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (EST)
The Americas has the highest child homicide rate in the world, indicating the sheer scale of the challenge facing the Region. In response, many countries and partners are taking action. This report is the first of its kind, charting progress against the framework of “INSPIRE”: a set of seven strategies based on the best available evidence with the highest potential for reducing violence against children.
The session will be available in English and Spanish, with simultaneous translation.
