Summary
Its purpose is to draw attention and raise awareness of humanity about an important problem that exists even in our time.

Most countries have national human trafficking laws, but still, people continue to be trafficked. To fight this heinous crime, on December 18th 2013 the United Nations General Assembly declared July 30 as the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.

In 2013, the General Assembly held a high-level meeting to appraise the Global Plan of Action. Member States also adopted resolution A/RES/68/192 and designated July 30 as the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. This resolution declared that such a day was necessary to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.”
