About

The National Plan of Action (NPA) on the Prevention and Elimination of Violence against Children (2021-2025) was developed based on the achievements and lessons learned from the implementation of the National Plan of Action on the Prevention and Elimination of Violence against Women and Violence against Children (2014-2020).

It aims to reduce violence against children in Lao PDR through strengthened multi-sectoral coordination with comprehensive preventive and responsive interventions targeting violence in schools, online, homes and communities.

The National Plan of Action on the Prevention and Elimination of Violence against Children uses a blended approach drawn and contextualized from the Multi-sectoral Response to the National Violence against Children Survey in Lao PDR (2018) and the INSPIRE Strategies for Ending Violence against Children, including implementing and enforcing laws, strengthening coordination and monitoring, creating safe environments including schools and online, supporting parents and caregivers in addressing social norms and values, promoting service uptake, and strengthening responsive services.

The National Plan of Action for Prevention and Elimination against Children (2021-2025) has a total of 4 main goals as follows:

  1. Expand the coordination and monitoring efforts to cover more sectors to end violence against children.
  2. Prevention and remedy of violence online, including sexual abuse and violation of children via online social media platforms
  3. Prevention and remedy of violence in schools
  4. Prevention and remedy of violence in families and communities
