FACTS & FIGURES
Although the global scale of human trafficking is difficult to quantify, as many as 800,000 people may be trafficked across international borders annually, with many more trafficked within the borders of their own countries. But it is only the peak of the iceberg.
Since 2000, IOM Moldova has assisted 9,282 persons within the Assistance & Protection Programme: victims of trafficking (VoTs), potential victims of trafficking and stranded migrants, as well as their families. The beneficiaries include women, men, girls and boys.
The National Referral System for Assistance & Protection of Victims and Potential Victims of Trafficking has been currently implemented in all territorial administrative units of Moldova. Currently the NRS is being expanded to the community level.
