7 & 8 October 2020
Children’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual health is of paramount importance to the future of Africa. The Covid 19 pandemic has exacerbated the challenging realities of our children and the impact of gender-based violence against children and others in the home, adding further layers of distress and trauma. Adults and communities which may have been able to provide some comfort or reassurance to vulnerable children in the past, are themselves now also stressed on multiple levels. There is an urgent need for accelerated and strategic action from government, non-government organisations, civil society, and communities.
The African Child Trauma conference series provides a unique and accessible platform for child protection stakeholders to connect with investors, scientists, technical experts, development partners, government organisations and civil society to share and consolidate their vision, building consensus and forging new and innovative partnerships to accelerate change in the landscape of child protection in Africa.
