It has been identified as the fastest growing criminal industry in the world.The Global Initiative is based on a simple principle: human trafficking is a crime of such magnitude and atrocity that it cannot be dealt with successfully by any government alone. This global problem requires a global, multi-stakeholder strategy that builds on national efforts throughout the world.

Regardless of the acts and conventions that have been passed earlier in the century, the occurrence of sex trafficking is not decreasing. Millions of women are still being kidnapped and transported from their homes. Some are even sold by their families for meager amounts of money.

11 Facts about Human Trafficking

  1. The average cost of a slave around the world is $90.
  2. Trafficking primarily involves exploitation which comes in many forms, including:
  • Forcing victims into prostitution
  • Subjecting victims to slavery or involuntary servitude
  • Compelling victims to commit sex acts for the purpose of creating pornography
  • Misleading victims into debt bondage
  • According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation.
  • It is estimated that there are approximately 27 million slaves around the world.
  • 68% of female sex trafficking victims meet the clinical criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Around half of trafficking victims in the world are under the age of 18.
  • More than 2/3 of sex trafficked children suffer additional abuse at the hands of their traffickers.
  • Trafficked children are significantly more likely to develop mental health problems, abuse substances, engage in prostitution as adults, and either commit or be victimized by violent crimes later in life.
  • Women who have been trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation experience a significantly higher rate of HIV and other STDs, tuberculosis, and permanent damage to their reproductive systems.
  • There is only one shelter in the U.S. designed specifically to meet the needs of trafficking victims, and it currently only houses a total of seven to nine victims.
  • Trafficking victims normally don't get help because they think that they or their families will be hurt by their traffickers, or that they will be deported.

  • There are a number of common patterns for sex trafficking around the world. In many places, particularly developing nations, women are lured into trafficking by the promise of a good job in another country. Having no better options in her home country, the woman decides to move away, unaware of the torture that lies ahead. Arrangements are made for her departure and she is appointed an escort. Upon arrival at her destination the woman is taken directly to her employer. At this point she has absolutely no control over the conditions of her employment. After discovering the true nature of her employment it is too late and escape is impossible and dangerous if attempted.
    Besides being lured with promises of a good job, there are other situations in which women can fall into sex trafficking. Sometimes women receive false marriage proposals from men who plan to sell them into bondage. There are also instances when young girls are sold into the sex trade by their parents who are trying to earn some money. And, of course, many times the women are simply kidnapped.
    Sex trafficking frequently results in debt bondage. This involves the woman being held by her employer until she earns enough money to repay the employer for the expenses he paid to acquire her. The set amount usually far exceeds the actual costs and may take the woman years to pay off. Even then, it is common for the woman to be forced to continue working or for her employer to sell her back into debt bondage and back into a system from which she cannot escape. This, of course, is only possibly if the woman has not died from a disease such as AIDS.
