The Multi-Sector Task Force A National Response to Violence Against Children

Background
The United Nations Secretary-General's (UNSG) World Report on Violence against Children (VAC), commissioned in 2001 and completed in 2006, was the first and most comprehensive global study on all forms of violence against children. The aim of the study was to research, report, and make recommendations on violence against children in the multiple settings where children live and survive—including the home and family, in schools, care and justice systems, the workplace and the community.
