Over 9,000 calls to the Human Trafficking Hotline in 3 years

18/02/2022

This is the data published at the “Experience Sharing Workshop of the project for Strengthening the Operation of Hotline for counseling and supporting trafficked survivors” by the Department of Children’s Affairs (under MOLISA) in collaboration with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) held on February 14, in Hanoi.

Speaking at the workshop, MOLISA Deputy Minister Nguyen Thi Ha said that the prevention and combat of human trafficking is a difficult and complicated task, especially in the increasing trend of crime in the world and the region.

The government identifies human trafficking as a serious social problem that needs to be urgently addressed. Since then, the need for advice and information on safe migration and information on human trafficking prevention and control is increasing.
The operation of the Human Trafficking Prevention and Control Hotline is considered one of the appropriate and useful solutions to strengthen the network of cooperation and coordination in the prevention and combat of human trafficking in Vietnam.
In the past 7 years, the Project of Strengthening the Operation of Hotline for counseling and supporting trafficked survivors sponsored by JICA has contributed to raising people's awareness about human trafficking crimes, as well as operating the Hotline.
