Combating Trafficking in Persons Program Management Office Resources

Human trafficking is a crime in the United States and globally. The Defense Department is committed to ending this human rights violation through the Combating Trafficking in Persons program.

Human trafficking includes sex trafficking, labor trafficking (also called forced labor) and child soldiering.
