UNICEF’s new report, Women: At the heart of the HIV response for children, highlights the sobering fact that, contrary to popular opinion, the AIDS crisis is far from over. Even as the disease beats a slow retreat due to the significant and commendable progress on many fronts in the last decade, it still strikes at people of all ages, including babies, young children and particularly adolescents. It continues to thrive among the marginalized and the powerless. Women and girls bear the brunt of the disease, both as the majority of those infected, and as those caring for others. The report contains 17 essays from women leaders in the fight against HIV, from activists living with HIV to prominent political and corporate figures.

This report presents the most current data on four specific forms of violence – violent discipline and exposure to domestic abuse during early childhood; violence at school; violent deaths among adolescents; and sexual violence in childhood and adolescence.

The report concludes with specific national actions and strategies that UNICEF has embraced to prevent and respond to violence against children.
In recent years, Cambodia has made progress in efforts to address violence against children and important steps have been taken to develop core laws, policies, specific strategies and regulatory frameworks for child protection.

Significant challenges remain for the implementation of these structures in the absence of a comprehensive and centralized national child protection system and workforce.
