How big is the problem?
Child sexual abuse is a significant but preventable public health problem. Many children wait to report or never report child sexual abuse
91% of child sexual abuse is perpetrated by someone the child or child’s family knows.
Experiencing child sexual abuse is an adverse childhood experience (ACE) that can affect how a person thinks, acts, and feels over a lifetime, resulting in short- and long-term physical and mental/emotional health consequences.
