Action for implementing the seven strategies for ending violence against children

In 2016, 10 global agencies collaborated to produce INSPIRE: Seven strategies for ending violence against children, the first-ever global technical package for preventing and responding to violence against children. The INSPIRE package is anchored by the recognition in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) that all children have the right to be free from all forms of violence, and sets out evidence that clearly shows that preventing violence against children is critical to ensuring sound neurological development, enhancing early childhood development, interrupting the intergenerational cycle of violence, reducing crime, and laying the foundations for lifelong health, well-being and productivity.

The INSPIRE technical package reinforces the protections guaranteed in the CRC, which oblige States Parties to take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and education measures to prevent violence against children, and to protect them from violence while in the care of parents, legal guardians or other caregivers.

A national health crisis: Maternal deaths in Papua New Guinea

A National Health Crisis: Maternal Deaths in Papua New Guinea, published by ChildFund Australia reveals that PNG is one of the world’s most dangerous places to be a mother, where 1 in 120 women are losing their lives during pregnancy in PNG, compared to 1 in 9,000 in Australia.

The report states that the risk of maternal death is 35 times greater in Papua New Guinea than in Australia, and more than half of women in PNG have no choice but to give birth at home, due to the extreme shortage of hospitals, clinics and healthcare workers. In rural areas, rates are even higher.

Child-sensitive Social Protection thumbnail

Child-sensitive Social Protection

Poverty is a fundamental barrier to realizing the rights of all children, including targets of the Sustainable Development Goals to end preventable child deaths, ensure quality basic education for all children and protect children from all forms of violence. Social protection is a basic human right for children, enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Children have the right to social security and an adequate standard of living, both of which can be guaranteed for children and families who live in poverty through publicly-funded social protection. At the same time, social protection is a key investment in building human capabilities, reducing financial barriers that families face in using basic services, and in breaking inter-generational poverty traps.

Protecting children on the move from violence, abuse and exploitation

Millions of children are on the move across international borders – fleeing violence and conflict, disaster or poverty, in pursuit of a better life. Hundreds of thousands move on their own. When they encounter few opportunities to move legally, children resort to dangerous routes and engage smugglers to help them cross borders. Serious gaps in the laws, policies and services meant to protect children on the move further leave them bereft of protection and care. Deprived, unprotected, and often alone, children on the move can become easy prey for traffickers and others who abuse and exploit them.
