Secretary-General's message on World Day Against Trafficking in Persons [scroll down for French version]

Human trafficking is a horrific crime and an all-out assault on people’s rights, safety and dignity.
Tragically, it is also a problem that is growing worse — especially for women and girls, who represent the majority of detected trafficked persons globally. 
Conflicts, forced displacement, climate change, inequality and poverty have left tens of millions of people around the world destitute, isolated and vulnerable.
The COVID-19 pandemic has separated children and young people from their friends and peers, causing them to spend more time alone and online.
