Participants at a high-level UN event are sharing their experiences and best practices in their fight against trafficking in persons.

One of the speakers is Rani Hong, co-founder of Tronie Foundation, survivor and strong advocate for freedom from slavery and trafficking.

Entitled Dignity for Victims of Human Trafficking, the event is taking place ahead of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons which will be observed on 30 July for the very first time this year.

Calls for increased coordination among all stakeholders will be made to ensure a better protection and rehabilitation of victims.

The gathering will also seek to promote a comprehensive implementation of the Global Plan of Action and to ensure a universal ratification of a UN convention on the crime.

States will also be encouraged to support a UN Fund for Victims of Trafficking, especially in women and children.

Jocelyne Sambira, United Nations.
