World Day against Trafficking in Persons

30 July, 2021

Every year, thousands of children, women and men fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. The Counter Trafficking Data Collaborative, the first global data hub on human trafficking, suggests that (at least) 100,000 people from 175 nationalities are trafficked each year, and that there are 164 countries of exploitation. The Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons and notes exploitation as including prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. World Day against Trafficking in Persons is thus to raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking, to promote and protect their rights and to eliminate trafficking.
