Trafficking In Persons (TIP) Report

2016 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report
The U.S. Government’s Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report is the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-human trafficking efforts, and it reflects the U.S. Government’s commitment to global leadership on this key human rights issue.

Releasing the 2017 TIP report, Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said:

“Human trafficking is one of the most tragic human rights issues of our time. It splinters families, distorts global markets, undermines the rule of law, and spurs other transnational criminal activity. It threatens public safety and national security.

But worst of all, the crime robs human beings of their freedom and their dignity. That’s why we must pursue an end to the scourge of human trafficking.”
