Thursday, May 4, 2006 10:25 AM

The UN is in the process of finalizing a survey, which was conducted in nine regional consultations all over the world during 2005. A questionnaire was sent to the given countries and 123 completed surveys have been received at this point in time. The study allows for the opinions of children and young people, so they can provide their input on how to develop better protection against violence.  The study is a joint initiative with the WHO, UNICEF and OHCHR.  The completed report is to be published in 2006.
