The World Day against Trafficking in Persons is observed globally to raise awareness about the prevalence and dangers of human trafficking. The day's purpose is to also promote actions to prevent and combat trafficking in persons, as well as to protect, support and provide justice to the victims of this criminal activity. In India, the government has been taking initiatives to fight trafficking through various campaigns and awareness programs. India is one of the countries significantly affected by trafficking in persons, with millions of men, women, and children being vulnerable to exploitation.

The day reminds us of the urgent need to end trafficking and to protect and support the victims. It emphasizes that trafficking in persons is a crime that affects the most vulnerable populations globally, and that it raises human rights and social justice concerns. The World Day against Trafficking in Persons provides an opportunity for people worldwide to come together and combat this modern-day slavery.
