18th October - Switzerland against Human Trafficking

Switzerland is a country of destination and transit for human trafficking. Due to the fact that this violation of human rights occurs in a clandestine manner, the population of Switzerland has limited awareness and access to information about this phenomenon which also exists here. Likewise, the definition and extent of human trafficking are not always well-known or understood.

The annual European Anti-trafficking Day, which takes place on October 18th, is an opportunity for the Swiss public to participate in events and receive information to better understand the mechanisms behind human trafficking. Identifying victims of trafficking and providing them with the necessary support requires the help of the whole population.

Together we can combat this crime and protect its victims. Human beings are not for sale!

Let us make the 18th of October the symbolic date against human trafficking in Switzerland.
