Child maltreatment is a serious public health problem with extensive short- and long-term health consequences. The Preventing Child Maltreatment: Program Activities Guide describes CDC’s public health activities and research to prevent child abuse and neglect. The guide outlines four categories of activities which are key to CDC’s prevention work: monitoring and researching the problem, developing and evaluating prevention strategies, supporting and enhancing prevention programs, and encouraging research and development.
