Violence Against Children and Young Women

Children constitute the majority of Malawi’s population: a window of opportunity for our future. However, evidence from the Violence Against Children and Young Women in Malawi Survey (VACS) paints a sobering picture of childhood in Malawi, suggesting that violence has become a social norm in Malawian communities.

The Survey, led by the Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare and supported by UNICEF, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was launched on 25 March 2015.
