During armed conflict, girls are subject
to widespread and, at times, systematic forms of human rights violations
that have mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and material repercussions.
These violations include illegal detention with or without family members,

and other inhuman treatment, amputation and mutilation, forced recruitment
into fighting forces and groups, slavery, sexual exploitation, increased
exposure to HIV/AIDS, and a wide range of physical and sexual violations,
