In 2019, the Government of Mozambique launched the Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS), led by CDC as part of the Together for Girls partnership. The VACS measure multiple forms of violence against children and adolescents: sexual, physical, and emotional, and they provide important data on risk factors, protective factors, and consequences of violence.


On May 7, 2021, Mozambique launched the Priority Indicator Report (PIR) from the VACS, the first survey of this type conducted in the country. The PIR provides key data on the prevalence of violence among children ages 13 to 24.
