UNICEF Caribbean launches campaign against child sex abuse

UNICEF has launched a new and praiseworthy campaign against child sexual abuse in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, where incidences of such abuse remain unacceptably high.

Shirking the subtleties typical of other UNICEF campaigns, the PSAs clearly define sexual abuse, encourage parents to believe their children when they say they’ve been molested and, importantly, urge caretakers to report adults implicated in sexual abuse.

Naturally, the challenge requires more than PSAs. What remains urgently required are more keenly-targeted behaviour change interventions and legislative responses to prevent and appropriately punish incidences of child sex abuse.
