Ending Modern Slavery: USAID’s Counter-trafficking in Persons Policy

Modern slavery, also known as human trafficking or trafficking in persons, affects the most vulnerable in our societies, and particularly women and youth. These horrific practices undermine rule of law, corrupt global commerce, foster gender inequality, and threaten global security. In 2012, USAID launched its Counter-Trafficking in Persons (C-TIP) Policy to address the human rights issues raised by modern slavery; it is currently undergoing a revision to reflect a more integrated, coordinated and survivor-centered approach to countering trafficking across USAID. In 2013, USAID released a C-TIP Field Guide to provide practical guidance to missions and partners to implement the policy through field activities. Since 2001, USAID has supported CTIP work in 71 countries. To download the Policy, Field Guide, and other C-TIP information, visit www.usaid.gov/trafficking.
