Welcome to the website for the Child Protection Program at Children’s Hospital Boston. The purpose of this site is to reach out to community providers and families, both here in the Boston area and elsewhere.

These pages contain educational materials and practical information about the problem of child abuse and neglect. As healthcare professionals, we view this problem as a difficult and important issue in the lives of many of our patients, as well as a significant public health concern. We hope that you will find this site informative, helpful, and reassuring.
