Fulfilling the commitment to child protection in Sao Tome and Principe

May 20, 2022

Strategic data can shed light on the invisible face of violence and unpack whether current interventions are working to ensure the protection of all children, especially the most disadvantaged. The picture in Sao Tome and Principe with regards to child protection is a mix of successes and continued challenges, as evidenced by the data presented in this publication on birth registration, children living without parental care, violence, child labour and child marriage. It is hoped that the findings in this report will constitute a key reference to support joint efforts, contributing to the development, improvement and reinforcement of prevention and response strategies to combat violence against children and youth.
