Human trafficking is a violation of Human Rights

According to the US Human Trafficking Report 2017, Human trafficking status in Bangladesh got worse as the country failed to step up its efforts to eliminate human trafficking. Bangladesh was downgraded to the Tier 2 Watch List as its government does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.

The government investigated 122 sex and 168 labor trafficking cases in 2016 a decrease from 181 sex and 265 labor trafficking cases in 2015. (U.S Department of State).

On the Human Rights Day on 10th December, Share-Net Bangladesh advocates this issue of human trafficking in Bangladesh.
