UNICEF has published its 2021 – 2030 Child Protection Strategy with a vision of a world where all children are free from violence, exploitation, abuse, neglect and harmful practices.

Child Protection is the prevention of, and response to, exploitation, abuse, neglect, harmful practices, and violence against children. It is embedded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The purpose of this Strategy is to provide a clear vision and strategic framework for UNICEF’s work in Child Protection for the decade to 2030 to meet this challenge. It calls upon every sector of society — not just governments — to work together and invest together to prevent violence against children.
