    Child protection netweork has to be extended in the region, district and even in the local government level in future. Howevr this will depend upon the policy. Becuase awareness of the child protection below the age of 18 years is under the blanketcover. This is common in kheng as I noticed physically and the local government heads are not aware including community people of such act. Many of them married before age of eighteen, then get divorced internally after having one or two child. Such problems are existed since many years. Only by surveillance and survey may reveal the realiaty. So that extending and adopting this facility in districts and Geog level will enable to reduce the problem. Thamks.
