The sad reality of child sex crimes

Someone known and trusted by the child or child’s family members, perpetrates a very large percentage of child sexual abuse. Many children wait to report or never report child sexual abuse. Therefore, the statistics likely underestimate the true impact of the problem. Experiencing child sexual abuse can affect how a person thinks, acts, and feels over a lifetime. This can result in short- and long-term physical, mental, and behavioral health consequences. Little investment has been made in primary prevention or preventing child sexual abuse. Effective evidence-based strategies are available to proactively protecting children from child sexual abuse, but few have been widely disseminated. CDC has developed resources to help states and communities use the best available evidence to prevent child abuse and neglect, sexual violence, and ACEs.
