Abstract: Approximately one billion children experience violence every year. Violence against children is an urgent global public health concern and violation of children’s rights. It is also a risk factor for serious negative health and social outcomes and is therefore addressed within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Key challenges exist in the measurement of disability and violence, which in part explains the dearth in evidence.
