On behalf of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's Child Abuse Prevention Program, the RAND Corporation's Promising Practices Network asked six professionals knowledgeable about child abuse and neglect prevention to answer the following question: If you had $5 million to spend each year for the next five years to prevent child abuse and neglect in the United States, how would you spend it? The authors represent a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Each author has written a thoughtful response to the question, and taken together, the set of papers offers a broad range of innovative ideas and strategies to make a significant impact on the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

The research described in this report was prepared for the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation under the auspices of the RAND Corporation's Promising Practices Network.
