The government is poised to join an international framework aimed at eliminating violence against children. A parliamentary vice-minister will attend a meeting of the Global Partnership to End Violence against Children being held in Sweden on Feb. 14–15 and announce Japan’s interest in joining. Set up in 2016, the partnership is composed of private and public sector players, including international NGOs as well as UNICEF and 13 countries, such as Sweden and Tanzania.

 

To eliminate human trafficking, child abuse, and other forms of violence against children, the partnership aims to build an effective framework by joining hands with players around the world and sharing information on initiatives being taken by individual countries.
