Together, We can make a difference

Child sexual abuse is far more prevalent than most people realize.

The prevalence of child sexual abuse is difficult to determine because it is often not reported; experts agree that the incidence is far greater than what is reported to authorities.

  • Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face with the most serious array of consequences.
  • About one in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
  • About one in seven girls and one in 25 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.
  • This year, there will be about 400,000 babies born in the U.S. that will become victims of child sexual abuse unless we do something to stop it.
