Human trafficking happens in almost every country around the world, including the United States, which can affect government contracts. You may not see the problem, but it’s there. It’s estimated there are more than 27 million human trafficking victims worldwide. Traffickers represent every social, ethnic, and racial group. Traffickers are not only men; women are also perpetrators. The children, women, and men who are trafficked are vulnerable due to poverty, economic hardship, natural disaster, political unrest, and many other risk factors that makes them a target for human trafficking.
The first step in combating human trafficking is awareness. Program managers educated on the signs and indicators of human trafficking could help identify if someone on a contract is a victim of human trafficking. Raising awareness about human trafficking and the impact on victims, reduces the prevalence of human trafficking and supports victims, prosecutes offenders, and provide communities with the capacity to respond to the problem.
