REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

This document is relevant as it presents in detail the measures of the national child abuse prevention and child support program for 2011-2015. It is important for schools, for our work in preventing bullying and violence::
1. The clarity of the purpose and objectives of the program, which aims to protect children from abuse and to provide more comprehensive assistance for victims.
2. There is provided estimated deadline for implementation of the program and its funding, which preliminary requirements are presented in the annex. It specifically describes what measures are provided for each task to implement the program, program execution time and responsible executives. The program is carried out by a lot of different ministries, whose activities overlap. Maybe local municipalities should be involved into the program implementation because they are most aware of the situation in their city or region.
3. The expected results are provided, but we would like to see less theoretical and share information, and more concrete help to the injured child and his family.
4. When evaluating the criteria of the program implementation it would be more appropriate to put more emphasis on non-informational, the methodological publications, and the percentage of children that have received free expert assistance, the percentage of children and their family members received comprehensive services.
