New study on Violence against children in Ghana

DCI-Ghana released a new report highlighting the prevalence and the various forms of violence against children in the Kumasi-Mampong metropolis.

The study was conducted in eighteen (18) communities in the Kumasi-Mampong Metropolis in the Ashanti Region of Ghana and focuses on four thematic areas of violence against children: the forms of violence; prevalence rate of violence; the effect of violence against children; and existing protective mechanisms of violence against children.

The report “A study on violence against children with special focus on sexual exploitation and child sex tourism in Ghana” provides opportunity for evidence-based advocacy on violence against children at the local communities, district, national, regional and international levels in terms of policy, programme, action and strategic initiatives.
