Standard operating procedures and shelters for victims were shared on the portal to enure that officer process cases with due dillgence for postive outcomes for victimes within the shortest possible time.
Impact: Improving the overall accessibility of human trafficking information to government officials and key stakeholders is a big step driving collective action in improving social protection services for vulnerable children.
