Reporta que en la región: dos de cada tres niños entre 2 y 4 años sufren de violencia doméstica en su hogar; cada día 67 adolescentes son asesinados; y 1.1 millones de niñas de 15-19 años han experimentado violencia sexual. Hoy, solo diez países de la región han aprobado leyes que prohíben todas las formas de violencia contra la niñez, incluyendo la violencia doméstica. Sin embargo, muchos de los niños y niñas de la región han sido afectados por el miedo y el dolor de la violencia. Esta publicación busca demonstrar que es importante incluir al sector privado en la agenda de la prevención de la violencia contra la niñez.
