Every five minutes, a child dies as a result of violence. In 2012 and 2013, we received 31 million contacts worldwide, with violence as the reason behind 29% of them. We tell the world what those children told us, in this data report which offers detailed statistics on forms of violence and regional variations – the first step towards making violence against children history.
