Violence in early years: a desk review for Latin America and the Caribbean
Summary of policy and programme recommendations
The desk review was intended to provoke in-depth dialogue, advocacy and guidance within UNICEF, both regionally and globally, for future programme design. Given the need for greater understanding about the roles of the different sectors in the protection of young children, it aimed in particular to inform the development of an intersectoral framework for UNICEF in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This policy brief has been prepared to provide an overview of the report’s analysis of the current research on the effects of violence against young children and to summarize its recommendations.
