Introduction: Violence can be defined as the intentional use of physical force or real or threatening power against itself, against another person, or against a group or a community, resulting in or likely to result in injury, death, psychological damage, developmental disability or deprivation. Objective: To provide subsidies to child health professionals in order to map care services to children victims of violence in a Health Region in the Northern Zone of the state of Pernambuco. Methodology: This is a cross-sectional descriptive study, in which a survey of services was carried out in the municipalities of the Regional Health XII that are currently working in the modality of reception and / or care for children victims of violence. Results and Discussion: Based on the study and survey carried out, it was possible to discriminate the various types of violence and the knowledge of the services in several sectors that work with the subject. Thus, the construction of a map indicating the specific services for the reception and / or care of children victims of each type of violence was carried out in each municipality, so that the services that are most present in the municipalities are the Basic Health Units, and, on the other hand, the services that are still non-existent in the ten municipalities are the Centers for Child Psychosocial Care (CAPSi). Conclusion: Through this work it was possible to conclude that the network of care and care services for child victims of violence in the Regional XII is still incipient, so that the sectors involved still do not demonstrate a well defined flow and a connection between them. Therefore, it is important to emphasize the importance of integrating and strengthening the actors / sectors involved in a joint and organized manner, in order to provide a qualified and welcoming attention.
