Pune: Child Sexual abuse is an international health concern opined Dr. Klaus Beier , head of Isntitute of sexology ,at the Charite University in Berlin. He was speaking at a lecture on primary prevention of child sexual abuse organised by Max Mueller Bhavan/ Goethe Institut in collaboration with KEM Hospital.
He added that Pedophilia is sexual liking or interest prepubescent children. Dr. Beier explained about the project in Germany which tries to target prevention in pedophilically inclined people and child sexual offenders. This project now has 11 contact points in Germany. He along with KEM would try to implement a similar project in order to prevent child sexual abuse in India, specifically in Pune.
Dr. Beier further stressed that not all pedophilics act upon their urges and abuse children. Thus, stigmatization should also be tackled and this awareness should be an international health concern. The reason for this being so widespread is that the internet is filled with images of child sexual abuse(CSA) and child pornography which extends across borders and today every country faces the challenge of increase of CSA at an alarming rate. Hence CSA is an international concern .
