2016-2020 program on sex trade prevention launched


A conference to launch the 2016-2020 program on prostitution prevention was held in the southern province of Bac Lieu on May 19.
Deputy Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyen Trong Dam said the program focuses on social solutions by building mechanisms to protect human rights, increasing vulnerable people’s access to social welfare services and raising public awareness of the drive.
As planned, the ministries and agencies will review and supplement relevant legal documents as assigned by the Prime Minister, launch awareness campaigns and pilot preventive models while increasing inspection.
Localities were asked to increase the fight against the sex trade, particularly cases involving children, improve the capacity of labour and cultural inspectors and establish inter-sectoral inspection teams.
Currently, there are 11,240 sex workers on record, mostly in the Red River, the southeastern region and the Mekong Delta. However, the actual figure may be higher due to the emergence of homosexual and trans-gender prostitution, sex tours and cyber sex.
The rate of HIV/AIDS transmission through unprotected sex has surpassed a record 45 percent. Moreover, sex workers frequently face violence and discrimination and find it hard to access social services.
On the occasion, Dam called on municipal and provincial authorities to provide resources for prostitution monitoring organisations.
The ministries of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs; Health; and Public Security should develop a cooperation mechanism to effectively combat prostitution, he said.
The event was co-hosted by the National Committee for AIDS, Drugs and Prostitution Prevention and Control; and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.

Slavery is a harsh reality for millions of people the world over who find themselves trapped in an exploitative and abusive system, bought and sold like objects, and treated with no dignity or human decency.

Human rights groups estimate that anywhere between 12.3 million and 27 million people are enslaved in forced or bonded labor, child labor, sexual servitude, and involuntary servitude at any given time.

Human sex trafficking is the most common form of modern-day slavery. Estimates place the number of its domestic and international victims in the millions, mostly females and children enslaved in the commercial sex industry for little or no money.

Not only is human sex trafficking slavery but it is big business. It is the fastest-growing business of organized crime and the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world.

Today, the business of human sex trafficking is much more organized and violent.

In some cases, involvement in commercial sex activity is a problem of epidemic proportion.

we must create a comprehensive law to address trafficking, with a significant focus on the dimension of the problem.

Patrol officers and investigators can look for many other human trafficking indicators as well. These certainly warrant closer attention.
