Young people take to the streets in Lusaka, Zambia on July 4 to take a public stand against child sex abuse and gender-based violence. The event was organized by the Zambia Medical Association. Data varies, but human rights advocates, medical researchers and others have found that child sex abuse rates are high in Zambia. The country recently launched a Health and Wellbeing Survey, which is now being used to develop priorities to better protect children from abuse.
