The Status of Child Abuse and Child Protection in Kenya and Kilifi County 2014: Challenges and Recommendations

A situational survey of child protection and child abuse in Kenya and in Kilifi County, was conducted in order to map the organisations working in child protection and to evaluate the process, prospects, opportunities and challenges around strengthening child protection and how this may influence or impact on child protection activities at county and national level. The assessment involved the review of secondary data and collection of primary data through contact with key informants by way of interviews and focus group discussions selected from a cross section of relevant actors.
