Child Abuse and Neglect

Child abuse and neglect deaths include those which result from apparent lack of care, abusive head injury/trauma, and other forms of physical violence. Child abuse education and training for parents, educators and caregivers is aimed at decreasing the number of deaths due to abuse and neglect.

The Alabama Child Death Review System was created in 1997 to review, evaluate and prevent cases of unexpected and unexplained child death, whether these cases are by abuse, neglect or other means. Their mission is to understand how and why children die in Alabama in order to prevent other child deaths. Visit Alabama Child Death Review System to learn more.
