Stepping up child protection: An assessment of Child Protection Systems from all countries in South Asia, including reflections from Central Asia

Save the Children launches a new report, which for the first time in a single document provides an analysis of child protection systems in South Asia. The research that this report builds upon shows that throughout South Asia and Central Asia – boys and girls of all ages, like in other parts of the world, experience violence in a range of settings and often on a daily basis. It brings to the forefront the latest data and information on the multitude of elements which comprise a child protection system from each country in South Asia. A main finding is the significant advances in the countries in relation to laws, policies and services. This report is a tool to support governments, civil society and children to continue to step up and take action for the protection of children and the amendment and implementation of laws, policies and programmes.
