The Zambia Health and Wellbeing Survey (H-Well), also known as Violence Against Children Survey (VACS), systematically measures the prevalence, nature and consequences of sexual, physical and emotional violence against children. It enhances the country’s capacity to design, implement, and evaluate violence prevention and response programs and build successful child protection systems.

The policy brief picks out key statistics for sexual, physical and emotional violence.
