Study: Mexico Has No Legal Framework for Children Whose Rights Have Been Violated

In Mexico, there is no adequate legal framework that exists for the care of children when their rights are violated in Mexico. Also, they are faced with widespread and increasing violence, not only within their families, but also in society according to the study, "Mapping and Analysis of the Child Protection System".

The report, recently presented in a press conference, highlights the fact that the child and adolescent population do not get to fully benefit from their rights. This is particularly true for indigenous and disabled people as well as for immigrants and girls - all of which is linked to poverty and discrimination.

It is important to note that amongst the major faults in the child protection system is the lack of an information system, which links to a lack of understanding of the problem, as well as the inadequacy of prevention, attention and rehabilitation programs.
