Child sexual abuse is the most prevalent health problem children face with the most serious array of consequences. Research indicates that 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old, and consequently, children who are sexually abused have a significantly higher risk of being commercially sexually exploited later on their lives. This course will teach you about the root causes of sexual abuse and exploitation, the prevalence and consequences of these crimes against children and ways community members can work together and individually towards prevention.
