GFEMS Recognizes World Day Against Trafficking in Humans, Advocates for Coherent Global Strategy
The Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) recognizes World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, an annual opportunity to acknowledge the victims and survivors of modern slavery and the organizations fighting this global crime.
Governments, the private sector, and civil society leaders continue to fight human trafficking, but face persistent challenges including fragmented efforts, limited resources, and lack of actionable data that prevent achievement of impact at scale. These challenges create an impetus for mobilizing and executing a coherent global strategy. GFEMS aims to catalyze this strategy by forging collaboration and coordination between partners and creating a unifying effort between government, the private sector, and civil society.
The Fund’s strategy for catalyzing a coherent global strategy is rooted in building public-private partnerships. Aligning with government and private sector priorities, GFEMS funds transformational programs and creates sustainable employment options for survivors and the most vulnerable populations in target sectors and geographies. These partnerships, supported by robust, innovative approaches to prevalence measurement, can ensure a better understanding of which interventions work to end modern slavery.
On this World Day Against TIP, GFEMS calls upon governments, the private sector, and civil society to join us in mobilizing and executing a coherent global strategy to realize our collective mission of ending modern slavery. The fight against modern slavery is stronger when fought together.
