REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

This document has been chosen because it presents in detail the national child abuse prevention and child support program for 2008-2010, which is relevant to our institution. Particular attention is paid to environmental analysis, which is widely discussing today's situation in Lithuania in terms of violence - as a social phenomenon. Provides significant information about the 2005-2007 program and the results were achieved.
In the Annex of the resolution detailed and specific description are given on what measures will be provided for each task to implement the program. It may be noted that the program includes a very large number and variety of institutions that contribute to violence against children prevention. These institutions’ working fields overlap thus there is a great chance the aimed results would not be achieved. In Section IV the program identifies aimed results and the criteria of evaluation, however vague forms of settlement, how we will see the end result, the benefits on a particular child.
