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.
