Keywords:Intervention model, Edutainment approach, Sexual abuse, Child
BACKGROUND: Child sexual abuse is the most serious public health problem in all cultures and societies that will have an impact in the future on a lost generation. The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) estimates that around 120 million girls under 20 y.o. have been sexually abused. AIM: This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of preventing sexual abuse in children by using an edutainment approach. METHODS: This study used an online journal database that provided free articles and journals in PDF such as Proquest, Google Scholar, Pubmed, Elsevier, and Scinapse. Literature was collected from the past 10 years, 2010–2020, using the following keywords: Edutainment, Child Sexual Abuse, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention, and Child Sexual Abuse Education Program. RESULTS: This study examining the effectiveness of edutainment in preventing child sexual abuse showed that edutainment in preventing child sexual abuse through children's play had succeeded in increasing awareness about sexual abuse in children and parents, as well as improving children's self-protection skills to recognize potential situations of abuse and resist inappropriate touch requests. CONCLUSIONS: Intervention model with edutainment approach effective for the prevention of child sexual abuse
