Workers providing health, social, legal and educational services to women and children will convene on December 18 to review and address challenges hindering progress in the prevention of violence against children and women.

The First National Conference on the Prevention of Violence against Children and Women, "Reality and Challenges", will also bring together representatives from several UN organisations, the media and academia.

Hani Jahshan, chairman of the conference, told reporters yesterday that the two-day event seeks to deliver a serious message to all segments of society that violence against children and women is unjustifiable and must be prevented at the national level.
