In the world, 50-70 percent of children become victims of psychological, sexual and physical abuse, Aaron Greenberg, Senior Regional Advisor for Europe and Central Asia, Child Protection at UNICEF, said.
Greenberg made the remarks during the discussions held within the 5th World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue in Baku on May 2, Trend reports.
“The enlightenment work should be carried out in the society so that all forms of violence against children must be eliminated,” he said. Greenberg stressed that the investments being made in the development of children from early childhood give a good result. "These investments are made to achieve long-term results," he said.
