Launch of the International Classification of Violence Against Children
June 21 @ 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
UNICEF has developed the International Classification of Violence against Children (ICVAC) with inputs from more than 200 experts from national statistical offices, academia, and international organizations. The ICVAC was endorsed at the 54th session of the UN Statistical Commission as international statistical standard and was recommended for inclusion in the International Family of Classifications. We are excited that countries now have a tool to assess the extent to which their national definitions on violence against children comply with internationally-agreed standards. It will also help countries ensure that data collection efforts produce comparable data.
