The World Day Against Trafficking in Persons 2023 campaign aims to raise awareness of the developments and trends identified by the latest UNODC Global Report, which noted that global crises, conflicts and emergencies as well as the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated the risks of human trafficking, as well as displacement and socio-economic inequality on millions of people around the world and makes them vulnerable to exploitation by human traffickers.
The UN calls on governments, law enforcement, public services and civil society to evaluate and strengthen their efforts to prevent human trafficking, support victims and end impunity for perpetrators.
