This policy note highlights that in order to eradicate child exploitation, we must take a dual pronged approach. We need to employ a broad lens to identify and challenge child and adolescent exploitation in all its forms, while systematically disaggregating its underlying causes and effects by gender, age, disability and other indicators of social exclusion – so as to fast track social change for adolescent girls and boys.
