Family Violence Prevention Fund
The Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) has made major contributions to the field of health in respect to preventing child maltreatment. The FVPF, with the main focus on working in the prevention of violence in the community and at home as well as helping victims of devastation through violence has various initiatives meant for the protection of children such as programs emphasizing on making improvements of the roles of fathers in the lives of the children. Remarkably, one of the main significance to the field of healthcare is to give FVPF National Consensus Guidelines in the identification of the nation in order to be reimbursed from Medicaid for screens of pediatric as a result of maternal depression (The Family Violence Prevention Fund, 2014).
Furthermore, FVPF can as well play another role in initiating a research role in the child maltreatment field. Notably, with the Child Abuse Pediatrics subspecialty sponsored by the Helfer Society with a given support from the American* Academy of Pediatrics* (AAP) as well as being accepted by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), a fresh generation of scholars has been formed through a fellowship that is accredited (Klein et al, 2016). Noteworthy, various studies on child neglect and abuse will achieve benefits from collaborative multi-site projects. On top of this, organizations that emphasize on health consequences of child abuse and violence, for example, Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) as well as the AAP, will together join hands in affecting the decisions on policy decisions in funding for research on child abuse and violence (The Family Violence Prevention Fund, 2014). These organizations and many other volunteer institutions focused on issues of child maltreatment will assist the FVPF in recognizing the vital consequences of public health of all kinds of abuse and violence, such as child maltreatment.
