“I can tell you that we are exceeding the figures for 2021. Violence against children has significantly increased,” the official said in a television appearance. He detailed that the statistics include simple mistreatment to sexual abuse cases and several forms of violence.
A new annual report of the Integral Protection System for Children and Adolescents Against Violence (SIPIAV) will be presented on World Day Against Child Abuse on April 25.
In 2021, SIPIAV registered or participated in 7,035 cases of violence against children and adolescents, according to the 2022 annual report.
