Child Maltreatment: the Lancet

The Lancet (in conjunction with the RCPCH) has published a series of papers about Child Maltreatment . Key findings include: a far greater incidence of child maltreatment than official statistics suggest; substantial under-reporting of child maltreatment by schools and physicians to child-support agencies; the need for multidisciplinary teams for effective maltreatment prevention; and acceptance of child welfare as a human right. You have to subscribe to see the full text of the articles. A print / online subscription costs £139 pa and online only is £113.
