‘Child Protection Act’ Mending Fences and Legislations in the Bahamas
In a sound governance process for any country, Child Protection is an instrument that bears witness to the country’s willingness and capacity to ensure that all children are protected from all forms of abuses and exploitations.

Under this praxis, investments in children and youth through the umbrella of social protection programs go a long way to strengthen and develop a socially cohesive society, in order to tackle and revamp goals for sustainable and equitable development.
In the critical areas of child protection, legislations, programs and interventions should be preventive and curative in natures as to extract the best outcomes in terms of educational, health and economic progress for a nation.

And as an example of such legislation, the Bahamas Child Protection Act stands on those grounds by aiming toward the strengthening and unification of several laws to “address the welfare and interests of Children”.
