Disclosure, reporting, and help seeking among child survivors of violence: A cross country analysis

Violence against children is a pervasive public health issue, with limited data available across multiple contexts. Using nationally-representative Violence Against Children Surveys in six countries: Cambodia, Haiti, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and Tanzania, this study presents descriptive statistics for prevalence of four outcomes among children aged 13–17 years: informal disclosure, knowledge of where to seek formal help, formal disclosure/help seeking and receipt of formal help.
