Bactiguard sponsors FTS (Companies Together against Sexual Abuse of Children)

19 April 2017

Bactiguard is not only committed to improving quality of life for patients but also for local communities, including in Botkyrka, where our headquarters are based.

We have recently become a proud of sponsor of Företag Tillsammans mot Sexövergrepp (Companies Together against Sexual Abuse of Children). FTS provide free seminars and education to Swedish schools, teachers and adults who work with children to prevent the sexual abuse of children. The prevention strategy employed by FTS is based on the provision of information, education and support to adults who interact with children daily to increase awareness. This is to ensure that educated adults will be instrumental in the prevention of sexual abuse by recognizing and acting.

Child sexual abuse includes criminal and civil offenses in which an adult engages in sexual activity with a minor or exploits a minor for the purpose of sexual gratification. As of today, we know that one out of five children in Sweden will be sexually abused before the age of 18.

We are proud to be part of such a valuable cause.
