In June 2014, the government of Haiti passed a new anti-trafficking law to fill a legal gap in the protection of survivors and to increase prosecution of perpetrators of human trafficking. These new legal provisions are particularly important in a country known for being an origin, transit point, and destination for human trafficking. This brief, published by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project AKSE program, aims to explain the rationale, scope, and implications of this new law. It is aimed at international and local organizations working in the field of human rights. This tool is part of a collection of materials developed by HPP AKSE to enhance the environment addressing child protection, trafficking, gender-based rights, sexual and gender-based violence, and to reinforce the capacity of actors in the protection chain and reference networks.
