Cambodia clinical handbook health care for children exposed to sexual abuse

Healthcare practitioners play a significantly important role in prevention and response to violence against children. They are often the first or only point of reference for children who have experienced violence, detecting abuse and providing immediate and longer-term care and support to children and families.

In 2015, the Ministry of Health developed “the National Guidelines for Management of Violence Against Women and Children in the Health Sector”, which provides health care centers and referral hospitals with an overview of prevention and response in the health sector to violence against women and children.
