ASSISTANCE, PROTECTION AND PREVENTION OF TRAFFICKING
UNDERSTANDING LEGAL AND SOCIAL ASSISTANCE

WHY DO TRAFFICKED PERSONS NEED ASSISTANCE?


Trafficking can be a deeply traumatic experience. Many survivors have been subjected to exploitation, abuse or suffered human rights violations, including forcible confinement, torture, cruel or degrading treatment, rape, sexual or other forms of assault, and slavery. As such, trafficked persons and migrants who have experienced serious human rights violations urgently need access to assistance. Assistance refers to a broad range of restorative actions aimed at supporting a trafficked person to regain his/her health and livelihood.
