Human trafficking is modern-day slavery, involving victims who are forced, defrauded or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation. Annually, about 600,000 to 800,000 people – mostly women and children – are trafficked across national borders. And that figure does not count millions trafficked within their own countries.

Human trafficking has a devastating impact on individual victims, and it undermines the safety and security of all nations it touches.
