Prevention and combating of trafficking in human beings
Trafficking in human beings for all the purposes is a serious problem worldwide. The Czech Republic has become not only the country of origin, but also transit and destination country for the victims of trafficking. The very first project of IOM Prague was an information campaign aimed at potential victims of trafficking for forced prostitution. IOM furthermore focuses on exchange of information between relevant experts, on the source countries, on information campaigns targeting groups at risk and the larger public. Apart from prevention activities, IOM is actively represented at meetings in the framework of the Program of prevention and support to the victims of trafficking and provides assisted voluntary returns and reintegration in the home countries of the victims of human trafficking.
