The Cost and Economic Impact of Violence Against Children

The consequences of physical, psychological and sexual violence against children can be as high as $7 trillion. While it is clear that ‘prevention pays’, levels of spending on preventive and responsive actions in relation to violence against children remain very low and are frequently not even documented. This article makes recommendations for addressing the problem through prevention methods while stressing that increased funding for research and advocacy are needed.
