Nora E. Groce, Ph.D., associate professor of public health (global health) and anthropology, chaired UNICEF’s Thematic Group on Violence Against Disabled Children, which in November issued a report that is part of a larger report on violence against children. The study is a collaborative effort by the United Nations Secretary General’s Office, the World Health Organization and UNICEF and is a follow-up to a 1999 U.N. study on children and armed conflict. The new report is intended to bring the issue of violence against children to the attention of policy-makers, governments and civil society around the globe. Corrie E. Paeglow, a graduate student in the Global Health Division at the School of Public Health, served as research associate on the project.
