Child Protection Still a Challenge in SA

Violence is widespread in South African society to the extent that the country has been described as having the highest prevalence of violence in the world, writes Virgili

According to Gilles Virgili, violence is widespread in South African society to the extent that the country has been described as having the highest prevalence of violence in the world.
 
In her article titled ‘Unaccompanied migrant children fall through cracks of Child Protection’, Virgili states that violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination affect women, girls and boys across all social strata in South Africa, greatly reducing their safety and security and at the same time limiting opportunities for development.
 
She notes that violence against women and children often go unnoticed as it is hidden and rarely reported, adding that governments across the world will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals in September 2015.
