In June 2014, government of Haiti passed a new law against human trafficking. The main purpose of the legislation was to minimize the incentives for people to become human traffickers. The act establishes penalties for trafficking-related crimes, including imprisonment for up to 15 years, and fines of more than US$30,000. Prior to the passage of this law, there were no provisions in the Haitian legal framework that criminalized trafficking in persons. The USAID-funded Health Policy Project AKSE program published this law to disseminate the content of this important legal instrument and help protect survivors of trafficking. It is intended for use by judges, lawyers, and human rights-focused NGOs, and is used by HPP AKSE to train judicial actors, in partnership with the Haitian government
