About Us

Our Mission

CHILD USA identifies the laws and policies that harm our children and then conducts relevant evidence-based legal, medical, and social science research.  With these facts, CHILD USA shines a light on the better pathways to truly protect all children from abuse and neglect. 


What We Do

Children’s Healthcare is a Legal Duty.  Sexual abuse and the maltreatment of children have an all too frequent impact on Children’s health.  These acts often occur in secret, behind closed doors, but have public consequences.  Victims, their families, and the public pay a high price even decades after the violence ends.  CHILD USA cuts through the shame and the secrecy to gather and analyze the data behind abuse and neglect. 

CHILD USA conducts research, compiles evidence, promotes ideas, and proposes the most effective policies to prevent childhood abuse and neglect. CHILD USA draws on the combined expertise of the nation’s leading medical and legal academics to reach evidence-based solutions to persistent and widespread child abuse and neglect. All child victims deserve justice, and CHILD USA aims to find the path for them.
