National Response Efforts to Address Sexual Violence and Exploitation Against Children in Mozambique: A Desktop Study

Scant data exists on the prevalence of violence against children worldwide. However, available information, including the United Nations Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children, shows that this is a global problem. This desktop study aims to glean from published and grey literature the extent of sexual violence and exploitation against children in Mozambique. The goal of this study is to better understand the government of Mozambique's national response efforts to reduce violence against children.
