Dr. Lazary talks about the setup of the Barnahus, their cases, and that as of January 1st 2019, the Child Protection Law allows police, judges or parents to ask the Barnahus to do interviews with children.

From 2019 the Ministry of Human Resources provides financial support to the Szombathely Barnahus National Know-How Center, and the Budapest Barnahus - to be opened in Buda, on November 20th 2019.
