- There is a need to develop child‐specific guidelines for healthcare providers in order to ensure that child survivors of sexual violence receive good‐quality services at the facility level.
- Healthcare providers in public health facilities need competency‐based training to enable them to acquire knowledge and skills to identify and respond to child survivors of sexual violence, collect evidence,
- communicate with the children and offer counselling support to child survivors effectively.
- Services for child survivors should be centralised in health facilities to minimise the number of different contact points.

- Children’s expressed wishes about their parents are paradoxical in cases of both alienation and neglect/emotional abuse.
- Assessments of children need to identify their ascertainable rather than expressed wishes. This requires a comprehensive multimodal psychological assessment involving all family members, cross‐referencing information from all sources from a longitudinal perspective.
