Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Elimination in Pakistan

Child sexual abuse has gained public attention in the past few decades and has become one of the most high-profile crimes. Since the 1970s the sexual abuse of children and child molestation has increasingly been recognised as deeply damaging to children and thus unacceptable for society as a whole.

The sexual abuse of children touches us all. It is deeply ingrained in our society – across all cultures and social strata.

Sex of this nature hurts the child physically; destroys them mentally, robs them of their innocence - permanently. Their ability to manage relationships for life is ruined. How can they ever trust another adult?

The information provided in this book is intended to provide sufficient data to enable social workers, politicians and the judiciary to come to more informed conclusions when considering matters to do with our children.
