What is National Child Abuse Prevention Month?

April 2019 is the 36th Anniversary of this national awareness month – April was first designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. Historically, the month of April has been used to raise awareness of the problem of child abuse. Now the month of April is used to focus instead on how communities can prevent child abuse and neglect.

  1. Approximately 5 children die every day because of child abuse. [1]
  2. 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18. [2]
  3. In the United States, more than 4 children die from child abuse and neglect on a daily basis. Over 70% of these children are below the age of 3. [5]
  4. Boys (48.5%) and girls (51.2%) become victims at nearly the same rate. [6]
  5. 2.9 million cases of child abuse are reported every year in the United States. [7]
