Brief Description

The first National Action Plan to Prevent and Respond to Violence Against Children 2017–2021 was developed in response to the findings from the 2013 Cambodia’s Violence Against Children (CVAC) Survey. The Action Plan was launched with five strategic areas: 
- Coordination and cooperation;
- Primary prevention;
- Multi-sectoral child protection response;
- Law and policy formulation; and
- Monitoring and evaluation. 
The Action Plan is being implemented through core commitments from relevant line ministries. One of the key actions is the Positive Parenting Strategy, which is targeted to reducing violence against children.
