COVID-19 Resources From Doris Duke Fellows & PCA Chapters

Effectively preventing child abuse requires an interdisciplinary, multi-partner approach. Such collaborations are even more critical in times of widespread disruption in a society’s social and economic fabric. While surviving the current COVID-19 crisis is the first-order objective for many in the field, equally important is drawing on these experiences to potentially identify new alignments and infrastructure developments that will strengthen prevention policy and practice going forward.

In partnership with the Doris Duke Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being, Prevent Child Abuse America is working to:

  • Disseminate, in a timely manner, information and promising interventions to reduce the risk of child maltreatment in times of social disruption; and
  • Apply what we are learning to strengthen the overall effectiveness of child abuse prevention programs and systems moving forward.
