Abstract

In recent years, Iowa leaders and the general public have focused on the abuse children have suffered from several causes, including sexual abuse, methamphetamine manufacturing, and serious physical injury. While this public attention and concern is welcome, the harm that children suffer from neglect, which Iowa law calls denial of critical care, has received little attention, despite representing almost three-quarters of all child abuse cases. With financial assistance from the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation in 2003-2004, Prevent Child Abuse Iowa started a Child Neglect Awareness Project, with the goal of creating greater understanding and awareness of child neglect in Iowa.
