Prevention of child abuse and neglect has taken on many forms since the 1960s when C. Henry Kempe identified the Battered Child Syndrome. Policy makers, legislators, professionals, and concerned citizens have struggled to find effective ways to prevent violence against children. This fact sheet defines prevention and discusses its importance, using illustrations from alcohol-related traffic death prevention programs, AIDS prevention programs, and adolescent pregnancy programs. It also discusses studies that illustrate the potential value of child maltreatment programs that can reduce incidence.
