Bid to end violence “that affects one billion children per year”

It was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) which says a new global approach is needed as around one billion children every year are affected. Despite the alarming data, WHO says that many cases of violence are “hidden, unseen or under-reported.” Daniel Johnson reports from Geneva.
