Abstract

Although the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1989 brought a welcome end to the Cold War, the subsequent reestablishment of independent Eastern European countries revealed a host of problems. Among these was frequent child abuse and neglect, although lack of epidemiological data precluded any accurate estimate of prevalence. In an effort to address the problem of child abuse within this rapidly changing sociopolitical environment, the Children's Mental Health Alliance and the Soros Foundation organized the Eastern European Child Abuse and Child Mental Health Project in 1995. The authors describe the development of this multidisciplinary initiative involving collaboration with professionals from 17 countries in Eastern Europe. They highlight the goals, principles, and major phases of the project, as well as some of the challenges involved in its implementation.
