CDC releases technical package to help states and communities prioritize strategies to prevent child abuse and neglect
Today, the CDC released Preventing Child Abuse & Neglect: A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities. A technical package is a collection of strategies that represent the best available evidence to prevent or reduce public health problems like violence. The package supports CDC’s Essentials for Childhood framework and highlights 5 strategies to prevent child abuse and neglect:
The strategies in this package include those with a focus on preventing child abuse and neglect from happening in the first place, as well as approaches to lessen the immediate and long-term harms of child abuse and neglect. Strategies are intended to work in combination and reinforce each other. The technical package describes the approaches to advance each strategy and the evidence behind them.
The technical package is intended as a resource to guide and inform prevention decision making in communities and states, so that every child has safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments, in a world where every child can thrive.
