Child Abuse is actually a global phenomenon which needs to be address. It's a global phenomenon because it happens even in more developed countries. Child Abuse is of different forms. However, all forms of Child Abuse should be addressed as decisively as possible. The following are some of the measures to be put in place in order to address this menace:
1. Governments at all levels should come up with legislations regarding Child Abuse.
2.Parents and guardians should take all the necessary actions to make sure that their children are not being abused in one way or the other.
3. The gap between the rich and the poor is so wide especially in some parts of Asia and Africa. As a result of that gap, Child Abuse is prevalent in such areas. Therefore, gap must be filled or reduced as much as possible.
4. Civil society groups must also contribute their quota by organizing enlightenment campaigns, seminars and workshops on Child Abuse and it's disadvantages in the society.
5. The media is not left behind in the fight against Child Abuse. I mean both local and international radio and TV stations like VON, NTA, VOA, BBC, Al Jazeera and the rest.
