The media plays a crucial role in informing the general public on issues in general, including Child Sexual Abuse
(CSA). Most people who reported knowing about child sexual abuse reported having known through media.
Therefore, the news media can be a very important platform to help the public, as well as policymakers, understand
CSA abuse and how it can be prevented in the future. A content analysis of Botswana media CSA reports
was conducted to determine the content reported on, and if they contained messages on CSA prevention. The
findings showed that Botswana CSA media reports were centered around criminal justice and where, prevention
messages were mentioned, it was at the backdrop of court cases. The findings from this study have implications
for further research and child protection practice.
