The 2016 Congress theme was Protecting our Children, Protecting our Future. It was expected to attract approximately 1200 -1500 delegates, with a major focus on attracting professionals from developing countries. We had a very stimulating event where we came together from all corners of the world to consider how best to protect children from being maltreated and maximize their well being.
