Hospital Child Protection Committee (HCPC)
HCPC is a parallel program supported by Konpal Caps for Child Protection & Development. It is a kind of network among different hospitals to report Child Abuse cases from the region. The team is comprised of psychologist, medical social workers, coordinators, pediatricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists etc.
On an average, the committee meets every month regularly, 600 cases of child abuse and neglect. These cases were monitored carefully and provided with immediate treatment. The statistical data collected by the committee is further used for research work.
