The economic burden of the health consequences of violence against children in Cambodia

The economic burden of violence against children in Cambodia is substantial, highlighting the importance of investing in prevention and prioritizing violence against children as a key public health concern. More than half of all Cambodian children reported some form of physical violence prior to age 18 by an intimate partner, parent or adult relative, or community member.

The findings of this analysis are key to understanding the consequences of childhood violence; the economic costs incurred by individuals, families, and society at large; and ultimately, the need to invest in strengthening the national child protection system.
