Abstract

Children always bring so much joy, happiness and laughter to one’s life. Unfortunately, they were always being the target to abuse. The effects of child abuse are severe and long-lasting to the victims. While recently Malaysia statistic has reported a significant increment of child abuse cases that have reported in this country.

The victim is only a child, who is innocent, powerless, and incapable to protect themselves without any help, care and support from people around themselves. Hence, this study purposed to determine the main factors that contribute to child abuse cases in Malaysia. In this study, FAHP (Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process) are used to determine the main factors that contribute to the child abuse cases in Malaysia.
