dc.description Child maltreatment (neglect, exposure to intimate partner violence, emotional, physical and sexual abuse) is an important Canadian and global health challenge. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) recognizes the need to use the best evidence to inform policy and practice to remediate short- and long-term negative health outcomes associated with child maltreatment. Work within PHAC pertinent to child maltreatment depends on collaboration with provinces, territories, other federal departments, academia and civic communities. The work described in the present commentary spans four areas pertaining to child maltreatment: national surveillance; exploration of associations with negative health outcomes; prevention efforts; and delineation of best practice implications for family physicians, paediatricians and other health professionals. We hope the present commentary will encourage further cross-sectoral partnerships. (Author Abstract)
