Protect Us! Inclusion of children with disabilities in child protection

Violence against children, at home, at school and in the community, is extremely common. Every year, approximately one billion children around the world experience some form of violence (Hillis, 2016), and this often has a long-lasting negative impact on their lives.

Children with disabilities make up at least 93 million children worldwide and they are even more vulnerable to violence than their peers without disabilities (WHO, 2011). It is therefore important to make sure that child protection, the measures taken to prevent and respond to all forms of violence, is inclusive of children with disabilities.

Plan International is fully committed to promoting the realisation of children’s rights including their right to protection from violence and abuse, and supports a wide range of child protection programmes around the world.
