Child abuse and neglect is considered one of the medical and social problems with a high prevalence and thus importance. Child welfare policies and practices varies widely across countries. In Sudan, Family and Child Protection Units were established to tackle cases of child abuse, yet a significant number of cases never reach the unit, therefore does not get appropriate care allowing for further consequences of abuse to commence. It is believed that a number of these missed cases actually reach for health care services via emergency departments of hospitals yet they are not being regularly referred. A study was conducted to investigate the reasons behind this gap for further understanding the issue.

by Frances C. Sherratt, Louise Roper, Simon R. Stones, Flora McErlane, Matthew Peak, Michael W. Beresford, Helen Foster, Athimalaipet V. Ramanan, Madeleine Rooney, Eileen Baildam, Bridget Young
