Ending Violence Against Children: Developing a Roadmap to a Healthy Childhood and Adolescence

End Violence Executive Director Howard Taylor joined Board member and President & CEO of Childhood USA Joanna Rubinstein  at “Ending Violence Against Children: Developing a Roadmap to a Healthy Childhood & Adolescence” conference, held at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York.

The hidden public health epidemic of violence against children, including sexual abuse and exploitation, is one of the root causes of mental health and substance abuse problems later in life. The conference highlighted the issue of violence and exploitation against minors and focused on practical strategies to raise awareness and understanding, prevention, identification and education to end violence against young people.

The conference, hosted by Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center and World Childhood USA, provided opportunities for collaboration and called on practitioners, policy makers, governments, academia, civil society and the private sector to join forces and scale up investments in solutions that target the well-being of children.
